I live OKC but I'm from NYC. I've lived in Mexico City, San Francisco and Paris. I worked in corporate America for many years and was excited when my company was bought out. I decided to take my business skills to the non-profit setting (cancer research NGO) which was dear to my heart and quit after attending 14 funerals in 6 months. I started to write down my "bucket list"... and then execute on them. That's why I travel. I'm back in corporate America and travel makes me feel alive. What else?
I've done 5 half marathons but now I mainly cycle and do yoga. I have degrees in English, Psychology and Business. I love food - talking about it, cooking it, trying new types. I collect art but don't claim to know anything more than certain photos and paintings make me extra happy. I wet my toothbrush before putting the toothpaste on. I'm a bad speller but a decent writer. I prefer the window seat (and I don't understand how United Airlines' food can be so horrible but Air France's food is so wonderful.)
Be nice. It doesn't cost anything and it just makes life better. Everything always works out... always... just be open to all of the possibilities.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
Gorillas in Rwanda. I cried... and I never cry.
Teach, Learn, Share
Teach - cooking, marketing, sales, business. Learn - Chefs (especially!), anything techy, photographers, really anything that I can learn... I want to learn - it inspires me. I want to learn salsa, tango and samba (so huge plus if you know any of those!) Share - you can have my half, too. ;-)
