Friends accuse me of being generous, loyal and reliable. I have to plead 'No Contest' on all counts.
I enjoy spending quality time with old friends and making new ones along the way.
When it comes to good restaurants, coffee shops, book stores, lounges, live music venues, museums, and theater, count me in. It's impossible to get enough of these things in New York City.
Weekends in the summer find me at Fire Island, where I make time for hanging with friends on the beach, yoga, and dinner parties.
Work and career are supremely important to me in their own right but also because they afford me the opportunity to do the cool stuff mentioned above that makes life enjoyable.
