She's reliable, responsible, loves to travel, knows how to enjoy simple things, takes difficulties in stride. She's curious, good at languages, interested in local cultures wherever she goes. She's normally more of a morning person than a night owl, but on vacation sleep is secondary to experience.
I enjoy my work as a freelance graphic designer. I like design challenges and love to collaborate with clients at work and with colleagues and friends on artistic projects. I can't remember when was the last time I felt bored. I play ukulele to relax at the end of a work day. Walking is among my favorite things to do -- exploring a new (or even a familiar) city, hiking a mountain trail, walking on the beach.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
I traveled all over Mexico alone in the '80s (before the current troubles in that beautiful country). Along with 3 or 4 others, chartered a small plane to visit Mayan ruins in the jungle bordering Guatemala (totally amazing).
Hiking the crater at the top of Haleakala (Maui), which I've done many times is always mind-blowing -- especially on overnight trips, when the stars and planets seem close neigh to touch.
When I was 20, I traveled from Ontario, Canada across the U.S. on a motorcycle. Many awe-inspiring moments on that trip!
