I love music, movies, politics and baseball. I read a lot, including the Times regularly, and I listen to NPR every day. I admit it--I'm a news junkie. I like all kinds of music--jazz, pop, folk, blue grass--and I've been playing the piano since I was able to read music.
I pull my camera out when it's sunny and the sun is low in the sky and I'm always looking for that perfect moment when light and subject align. I was a newspaper reporter for many years, then moved into politics, p.r. and now academia. I've published two novels -- both political thrillers. I prefer substantive conversations to small talk and I like women who are curious about the world around them.
