What is your hometown?

Diamond Point, New York. Tiny town in the Adirondacks on Lake George, closer to Canada than to New York City. Very cold!

Which languages do you speak?

Mandarin Chinese, Spanish, French, Turkish, and American Sign Language. Have learned in the past and sometimes revive Indonesian and Cantonese. Studied and have totally forgotten Japanese and Arabic.

If you could live anywhere in the world, where would it be?

Do I have to stay in one place? If not, let’s start with the Loire Valley in France, follow that with Istanbul, next back to Barcelona, I’d try Sevilla, and always wanted to spend time in the Basque Country (both sides of the border).

What is your favorite meal?

Oysters and wine. Stir and repeat.

Anything else you want to share with the world?

I live in Sausalito, CA and travel to San Francisco ABC by boat. I can see the San Francisco Bay, hear sea lions and watch pelicans fish from my home. Even though I live in a small town, I always find people with whom I can speak all the languages I know.
