I love to travel and have been to Europe a number of times, Berlin mostly. It is one of my favorite cities and if my life ever permits it, I would seriously like to spend more time there. My trips have been "work" related going to these places for exhibitions.
This past September (2012), I was included in a group exhibition at a private museum in Beijing and went there with a few friends who were also in the show. Beijing is not the most picturesque place in the world, but had some amazing experiences there.
Between my full-time work and my studio practice, I have a scant amount of time for socializing. However, I do make a serious effort to avoid the stereotype of the artist hermit.
My friends are the best part of me. I would not trade them for anything in the world.
