Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I love my life. I am full of adventure and curiosity. Art, music,
creativity, bravery and intelligent conversation inspire me. I find
most things in life absolutely hilarious.
I have been to all 50 states and four continents. I'm just going to
keep on going... India next? Or, Argentina? Spain... please,
Bertrand Russell said at the end of his life all that really
matters is being kind. And, in the spirit of Shaw...at the end of
my life I just want to be all used up.
I have tons of energy and accomplish a lot. However, I cherish
quiet. I crave space for spontaneity and rest.
I am happy.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I love NYC, and I am a citizen of the world. There is no airport or
train station that is not my friend! Let's go!!! My favorite places
on the planet are New York City, the bottom of the Grand Canyon,
Venice Italy. I suppose the common threads with those three are
lots of water, dramatic "architecture," surprises around every
corner and passion.
For me, it is important to balance being out in nature and being in
the heart of a vibrant city. I am an outdoorsy Colorado native who
worked for Patagonia for six years. I have also worked for Tiffany,
Cartier, Ralph Lauren, and love being sparkly City gal. Being
immersed in art and music and the celebration of vibrant human
endeavor is like oxygen for me.
Training for marathons is exciting and an important focus. I run
for the Christopher and Dana Reeve Foundation. Two friends are the
inspiration for this amazing cause.
I am a Red Sox fan living behind enemy lines. Yes, that's
I am always listening for what people love and what they are
committed to and what inspires them. Around me, those things get
I love dressing up and being fancy, and I think good manners
And, I love being in the wilderness, where good "manners" (respect
and awe) also matter.
People often inquire what their lives are for. So, I took some time
to think about what is deeply important to me, and created this
purpose for my Self:
"All people fully alive and celebrating the gift of life; nurturing
our bodies, our earth, and each other." Mostly, everything I do and
have my attention on, fits inside that context.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Reading, skiing, drinking copious amounts of green juice,
experimenting, being on time, playing, sleeping soundly,
redecorating every room I walk into in my mind, laughing, being
creative, riding my bike in heels in scary traffic, getting ready
in under 20 minutes, zipping through security lines very quickly,
eating super hot chiles, appreciating and celebrating people.
The first things people usually notice about me

There is no such thing as typical. To me, there's not much
difference between a Friday night and any other.

I am not private, actually. I will answer anything that anyone
wants to know about me. So, that's that.
