What in your personal life has influenced you to choose your career?
People. Duh. I wanted to get to know them better. Plus I LOVE food. I really wish I could be a non technical food taster. I live for the magic that happens around the table.
How do you balance your personal and professional life?
A day of rest every week. Honestly I get overwhelmed sometimes. If I don't take a real rest / break, I start to become a little unglued. I am a real fan of naps, Netflix, the ocean, and reading. I am totally boring in real life.
Is there anything you haven't done yet that you feel compelled to achieve in the future?
I'd love to be a mother. I think nothing can replace that kind of love for another human being.
What are your other interests?
I'd love to get into painting. That is one of my next outlets for myself. Also Estate Saleing. I have this obsession of looking through other people's homes and finding cool old things. Plus tennis. I am not that great, but I love to play and I love to watch.
What rejuvenates you?
Other than my day of rest each week, being around Beauty rejuvenates me. I LIVE to travel. Nothing is like wandering around another country w no agenda. I wish I would make more $$ and find the time to do it. There is so much incredible Beauty out there to be seen and experienced. Being surrounded by nature and feeling so small, in the scheme of things, is a really good feeling. I love the beauty of flowers, gorgeous clothing, laughter of children, road trips, really good hearted people, eating my heart out, and a solid cocktail. Oh, also a really good Dance Party!
On a separate note you won't be seeing any Americans featured on 11 Questions for a while. I'm currently based in Ethiopia and hope to continue it here. The questions may be a little different but hopefully it will be the same format.
