I love to travel. My free spirit has led me to book several trips (sometimes last minute). My favorite place to travel is Hawaii.

My furbaby Jax can do no wrong.

I take my food, wine, and cigars seriously.


I love surprises, especially

flowers and chocolate.

Fine and performing arts are in my blood. I've danced (jazz, tap, ballet) since I was 3 and I enjoy painting. Some of my artwork is in my parents house.
