I am in constant search of ideas, places and moments that expand my optimistic worldview. I like to keep my glass half full, especially if it involves wine. I love second-hand bookstores and try rescue at least one second-hand book in almost every town I visit. I seem to be inclined towards assignments and adventures that tread a thin line between posing a challenging or embarrassment. Having recently learnt to ride a bike and swim, you could say I'm on a quest to reclaim the childhood I spent mostly indoors watching Oprah.
