I realize "words" are just that, however I know who I am and what I want. That definitely comes from age and wisdom. I'm easy going and have always had tremendous patience, perhaps due to my artistic side. I have some really great friends and I love what I do. It really challenges me and I'm incredibly excited about the projects I'm working on and the people I am working with. People have said that they admire my emotional strength, however sometimes I admittedly exhaust myself and I'm working on it. I’m the go-to girl; the source of comfort for family friends and clients who seek advice, because they know I will make them feel better. Maybe my professional storytelling skills allow me to see things from a variety of perspectives. I also have a spontaneous, goofy side and I like to keep things fun (working in comedy doesn't hurt)!
My most life altering moment was when I became a kidney donor for a close male friend and then had the unique opportunity to share our story on Oprah. If I was able to donate again, I would do it without hesitation.
I'm often asked why I'm still single and my response is: "Have you ever lived in Los Angeles?" I basically gave up my dating life in my late 20s-40s for my career, which were the pre-internet dating days. I can't dwell on the past, but I did "grow up" there and I'm grateful for the education, experience and the relationships that LA gave me. And yes, I'm picky. However, I feel fortunate to be able to live and work in NYC doing something I love and have a more balanced life. I've certainly learned a lot about myself in the process and still learning...
It’s never easy or simple, but one thing I know for sure - living a wonderful, happy life means there's no need to settle for anything less than what we all want and deserve.
