About me

Occupation Executive Assistant
Location Ridgefield, Connecticut, United States
Introduction Issaquah, Washington born and bred. It took two trips to New York and my heart broke when I had to return to Seattle after a vacation. Moved to NYC in September 2000. On September 11th, 2001, I became a New Yorker. Spent 2002-2004 in Chicago (regrouping) and met the best people and went to the best bars and saw amazing architecture but my heart pulled my husband and me back to the NY area. We now live in Ridgefield, Connecticut (45 min on the express train to Grand Central) where we can play tennis, enjoy the amazing beauty of this area and still be close to our love, NYC. No kids other than Betty the bulldog. We just bought our first home close to town where we can have a full-on organic garden (dream job: Union Square Farmers Market). We LOVE good food, good beer and sharing both with friends on a warm summer evening.
Interests Betty the bulldog, history, tennis, gardening, Japanese gardens, funky gardens, running, slow food, bicycling, road trips, international travel, seeing live music, sleeping, modern architecture, landscape design, hiking, love,

That can't really be a fish you're standing on, can it?

Why, it is a fish I'm standing on. Thanks for noticing. She's a Copper River. Do you like?
