Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Wanted: one brilliant woman who has a Ferrari for a brain but
drives it like a kid.
Here are some facts that provide some context about me:
1. When I make short ribs, I wrap them in bacon and cook them for
2. I don't split checks.
3. I was once incarcerated in a foreign jail.
I have many responsibilities and just enough free time. I work hard
and occasionally play too hard. I don't fix things; I believe in
calling in the experts. I love to cook, and have learned to sear
fish to restaurant quality.
I have the world's most fabulous almost eight year old on the
planet, who I share equally with the world's most fabulous
I have a large group of friends, with whom I sometimes still watch
the sun rise. They range in age from 21 to 46. I have put up some

hosting long weekends there with my friends. I dream about
building a retreat in Inverness or Sonoma where I can have all my

I spent my 20s figuring myself out. I spent my 30s accumulating
things and knocking down pins. Now, I am pared down to only
essentials. I think money is best spent on changing lives and
bringing people together, not on fancy objects.
After writing a book about politics that now sells for $0.12 now on
Amazon (this is not a joke), I planned to be a college professor. I
jumped off that train and onto Internet 1.0. Now I run a small,
specialized kind of private equity fund out of a SOMA loft.
Some of my favorite moments from 2013
1. New Year's Eve in Floripa, Brazil
2. Watching Fleetwood Mac in the rain at Jazzfest
3. July National Geographic Alaska adventure with my daughter
4. Winning a cooking competition with the short ribs referenced
5. Soon heading to the Maldives to go diving
