Outgoing, confident with an absolute joy for life.
What I’m doing with my life
Working for a great company and great boss who only accepts gigs
that really interest me.
The company is, of course, mine, and I do contract work for
companies that need help with change, transformation, human
resources issues and executive and leadership coaching. I spent
most of my career as a senior manager and executive in large
companies and am totally enjoying reaching out to smaller and mid
sized companies that don't have this level of support. AND it means
working on my timeline so I have lots of time for other marvellous
I’m really good at
Being a loving friend and family member; making the 'now' count
more than the past and future; working and playing hard; listening
intently and being direct but not confrontational.
Listening to music of all types with eclectic taste, ranging from
Hank to Hendrix.
The first things people usually notice about me
Tell me when you meet me!
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Oh man, more lists..just read Kate Atkinson's new novel Life after
Life and cannot stop thinking about it..
Movies and music: saw Lincoln and Tarantino's Django Unchained at
the movies; watch many more movies at home on demand; the dogs are
quiet and we all love popcorn, mine with tabasco sauce; music? Last
two concerts were Neil Young in Calgary and the Stones in TO; love
jazz preferably live and yes opera but more traditional and weep
unabashedly at Madama Butterfly.
Food? Love to cook, barbecue, make delish soups; Asian food; rice
dishes and ice cream. I LOVE ice cream and frozen yoghurt.
The six things I could never do without
Other than the life giving stuff like air etc., I could never live
without the ability to think and reason and make sense of this
crazy, wild ride we are all on together.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
What I am doing right NOW....in this regard, I actually work at
living in the moment and trying not to be forever looking backward
and forward. Not that I don't believe in learning and loving the
past; and planning and dreaming of the future, but in the midst of
my life I try to truly live it..who said (other than the Tragically
Hip) life is not a dress rehearsal?
On a typical Friday night I am
Um what is special about Friday night?? or Saturday? or Tuesday?
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Anything that private, I wouldn't think that posting it on an
Internet site would show much substance.
You should message me if
What you have read speaks to you...
