If I could be anywhere at the moment: "Ski mountaineering in Alaska, or in a jazz club in New Orleans."
In my bedroom, you'll find: "Some books on soul-searching, my African drums, and a few lingering thoughts."
Why you should get to know me: "I will intrigue and challenge you, spoil you and laugh with you."
Song or album that puts me in the mood: "'Pretty Woman,' 'Lady in Red,' 'Unforgettable.'"
The five items I can't live without: "Garlic, cashmere, friends, fine literature, morning coffee, sun, laughs."
Why you should get to know me: "I get the cosmic joke."
"I can sing the famous aria from Carmen. I eat dark chocolate like others take vitamins - daily. I'm active in the community."
