After growing up in Switzerland, I moved to Baltimore. Save for an important 2 year sabbatical living and working in 3 developing countries. I have spent most of the last 20 years in the US. Brooklyn has been my home for the past three years.
What drives me in life is the discovery. I am always on the look out for new experiences to learn from, opportunities to improve myself and the world.
Besides my environmental interests, I am drawn to progressive politics (taxing the rich, even if it affects me), being active outdoors (mostly on my bike or walking) and food adventures (my latest to a Russian spa restaurant).
...admittedly I have been known NOT to recognize Oscar winning actors. I can tell that story!
....I lean vegetarian, but I am willing to experiment with any cuisine.
- when it is hot out one beer after work relaxes me
- coffee in the morning, after lunch some days
- being challenged
- romance with my special someone
- exercise, I need my pilates mat.
....if English Is not your first language or you have spent time abroad or have a desire to do so.
