I believe that truth, understanding, compassion, respect - good chocolate/red wine and fine tunes are the ingredients for a truly joyful existence. I prefer quality over quantity in almost any context. Exercise outdoors is my thing. I am not a major tv watcher but utilize netflix and my local independent video store.
I was raised in South Africa, studied and worked between Europe and US most of my adult life.
I am nurturing, feeling, compassionate, quick, and joyful.
I'm a muse on many levels and somehow have been able to integrate that archtype into my professional path always being led by curiosity and values. Strategy naturally comes, advisory services to many, making change, asking tough questions. In multiple sectors over 2 decades generally related to bettering the human and natural condition. Sustainability, healthcare and education seem to be the themes in USA, EU and developing markets and then a few art/technology fun things too!
Fun: Any travel, water related play (sail, swim, paddle), kids, gardening. Socializing with any culture or age group. Playing in nature, living it up in any style. Being a friend, giving to people and the world....
Continuing teaching myself guitar, growing the extent of a meager food garden and writing.
I can knit a warm sweater and it looks pro ( have not made one in about 10 years), cook a great soup and other food groups. I have a gigantic music collection - so can make a mean playlist! I fold laundry perfectly if its still warm.
Legal one! now with two passports and would love a third!

allergic to. Hot spicy is a challenge to my pallet. Prefer clean,
well prepped and organic or happily raised but if have to will eat
street food when on the road. I love to dine on white table cloths
or funkee eclectic dingy spots...its about the food, service and
atmosphere and memory.
