Personal connections & interests center a strong client-advisor relationship.

I love travel-what I learn from people of different countries from cooking, culture, art, literature & history. We have so much to give and learn from one another.

I love film. How fun to be living in our Golden Age of TV serials & board games. Where I can't travel, I watch film. Where I can, I watch film anyway & reminisce.

I enjoy John Oliver, my husband and anyone who makes me laugh. I look forward to Jon Stewart 's and Steven Colbert's next projects.

I consult Nouriel Roubini, Nassim Taleb, Yves Smith, TPM & clear-minds who make me think.
