The one thing I am passionate about...
I'm passionate about a lot of things! I'm very passionate about my family and friends, I'm passionate about my clients and my work, and I'm completely passionate about anything water-related from swimming to sunning at the beach. In fact, my nickname is "mermaid"! I love learning new things, discovering. I'm love to read, write, paint, draw. I'm also passionate about helping people! That makes me very happy. I'm into bikram yoga, hot baths, saunas..I'm also passionate about strong black coffee and sleeping! I love being in nature and animals, even though I'm a city girl...
I typically spend my leisure time
I love being outside. I like to play soccer with my baby nephew or friends. I love going to Coney Island and the Rockaways. I used to be a hard core jock, running marathons, surfing, doing triathlons, cross country. Now I (and my knees!) prefer low key and more chill ways to stay strong--birkam, walking around the city. Kicking the soccer ball by the water is always fun! In the summertime, I'm at the beach as much as possible swimming, sunning, leaping in the waves! I love a good meal, a good wine, a good book. And spending time with a good egg!
The most influential person in my life has been
A magical connection, brilliance, kindness, integrity. The big thing is that I get you and you get me. And we connect in a passionate way. I'm a good egg and so are you.
The first thing people notice about me
I think my eyes.
The last book I read and enjoyed
I'm a voracious reader! I read anything and everything. My parents are authors so I was born to read. I enjoy anything Milan Kundura, Jonathan Ames, Jhumpa Lahiri, Paulo Coelho, Louise Hay, or Arthur Nesserian. My favorite book of all time is The Alchemist. The life lessons in the book are key, and I love the writing too. Another all-time favorite is Perfume since the author uses the sense of smell to tell the story rather than sight, which most writers do. I read constantly though-gossip magazines, health books, non-fiction, art books, biographies. Anything! I'd rather read a new book at night than watch Real Housewives.
The three things which I am most thankful for
- being awake and alive
- my dear family and friends
- the simple beauty of life--especially a good meal, a good sleep, a good book....
