Reaching the finish line
Running, reading, and ‘riting. These are the 3 “R”s of my life. Neither rain, snow nor sleet keep me from running – I love the freedom and silent moments that this daily ritual brings. I’m a die-hard TV-free adherent who believes that fewer screens give you clarity. The joys of my life are simple pleasures like new travel adventures, unexpected fashionista finds, or creative party planning. Heaven is being with my family, a delicious bite of chocolate, and blasting the Moody Blues. I'm unabashedly proud of qualifying and running the Boston Marathon in 3:38!
Run with it!
Why do I say 'Run with it?' I am a hard-core runner, both in real life and with my projects. You won't need to chase me.
I don’t like to toot my own horn – I toot your horn. I believe in the power of listening; it’s been said that listening is a magnetic and strange thing, a creative force. I know how to ask questions and find answers, whether it’s a blog about electronic medical records; ghostwriting for a CTO; or a white paper for a start-up. “Resourcefulness” is my middle name
