I identify myself as a "laid back type A" who believes in manners, hand written thank you notes, monograms and the healing power of the color pink.
I have lived in NYC since graduating from college and have had a full time fairly demanding job ever since, but I am by NO MEANS a workaholic, I live for weekends. I love the beach A LOT, skiing (not snowboarding, I am old school) and am an avid traveler. Oh, and once I ran a marathon without training, but that was a momentary lapse of sanity that I am proud of but cant imagine doing again. It is a fun story though. I do love to exercise and I try to make time for it most days of the week.
Personally I am often found at the gym or any type of wild physical stress reliever, spending time with friends & family, enjoying dining out in NYC, reading, and planning my next trip (I know its a common theme on OKC, but I really mean it: I live to travel).
-talking, laughing and sharing
-making nachos out of pretty much any product (no need for cheese, salsa or chips but they certainly help)
-making others feel comfortable and welcome
-laying on a beach for hours on end
-being a travel buddy (the more adventurous/rugged and crazy the journey the better)
-being helpful to both friends and strangers
-writing profiles for OKC that are way too long and don't say much that is unique
I will say I am a proud classic rock fan (some say I was born in the wrong generation), perhaps airing on the side of easy listening (more than hard rock), and love folk singers/songwriters, I couldn't live without Joni, Carole, Carly, James Taylor, Fleetwood (specifically Stevie), CSNY, Otis, Nina Simone, Cat Stevens, The Band, etc. I love most food and live to eat out.
2. Running Shoes (especially when I am traveling- best way to organically explore)
3. Music- a constant in my life
4. A Camera: endless photo worthy moments in NYC and beyond
5. iPhone (more for work reasons and the camera/music on it)
6. My Passport (I really do keep it in my wallet just in case)
