While I can be very laid-back, I also can be passionate about things and focused. I try to be open to different points of view and learn from them. I like to balance that with humor, laughter, and not taking myself too seriously --and can really appreciate a little goofiness. I also believe it is very important to add value, to contribute and to be compassionate.
I have always been a reader and have a wide range of interests, which with my science background, has lead me down some interesting roads, provided me with a stimulating work life, and has led to travel to some fascinating places. I like art, dance, architecture, theater, movies and a range of music – a great experience was seeing a modern opera at the opera house in Venice. I am very active and fit - a serious gym goer.
