i'm a designer . . . and while i love design, my own life has been spare in the material realm. i sold everything i owned (save 4 boxes and a bag of clothes and my camera) when i moved to thailand several years ago and have never felt more liberated . . . i’ve been a bit of a gypsy.
i'm generally an optimist and really enjoy life. i believe absolutely in kindness and am revolted by cruelty in any form. i make excellent thai food (and i do not spare the chili peppers). i know how to use the word “phylum” in a sentence. just learned how to SCUBA DIVE and it is my new MOST FAVORITE thing to do. was learning to surf and still have the board, but now am getting more active on a bike. bought a great road bike last year, and getting up to speed on it.
i am a true sci-fi geek . . . my imaginary playmates (when i was young) were the original cast of star trek - there was a tree in the backyard with a nook in it that i used as the transporter. this was in new jersey where i grew up, but i do not (never did) have the accent . . .
i have all of BSG on my laptop. i love reading the index in harper's, listening to human interest pieces on NPR, am avidly into yoga, and kick butt in backgammon and cribbage. i also have a burgeoning robot collection . . .
i believe in simplicity and in hedonism, and i know when to exercise which . . . happy with my life and my trajectory, but open to meeting others and seeing what kind of synergy we create.
