The Rest of My Story

While I think my story gives you a glimpse into who I am... I also wanted to add some extra things that might help you to get to know me even more.


Citizen of 3 Countries

Chile by Birth. Canada by Parent. USA by Love. Three in Chile. 40 in Canada and the last 10 in the USA. Each one is home to a part of me. 


I speak three languages

Canadian, Californian and New York State . I jump back and forth between the all three.  "Out" and "about" seem to show my Canadian roots. "Dude" is indicative of California. New York State? Still learning. 

Single Malt Collector

Whisky Connoisseur

Despite many wonderful scotches in my collection, my favorite is still the 16 year old Lagavulin. Some who have tried it think it tastes a little like alcohol rubbed in a burnt log. I experience it as a warmth on a cold, wet day on the Scottish Isles with a wood fire burning. 

Infinite Curiosity

I am infinitely curious.

Especially about you. What do you do? Why you do it? Who are you? What's your story? Tell me more. 

Grocery Shopper

I love grocery shopping.

I map out the store in my mind and write my shopping list to mirror where things are in the store. Then I shop. If you are willing, I'll give lessons. Some people might think I'm a little "OCD" about the whole process.

Farm Kid At Heart

"Farm Sense"

I spent many years as a kid on the farm. It instills a certain "farm sense" in you.  I secretly wish more people had it. I'm lucky that "she" has it. Fact is, we learned it on the same farm! 


More to come...

Haircut Anxiety

Haircuts cause me a certain level of anxiety

My hair has been blessed with cowlicks and is directional challenged.  I cut the most obvious cowlick off at 4 years old. That didn't work out so well with the parental units. Most barbers since then have been more gentle on me. Lucky for me, gel and rapid growth cover a multitude of issues.

No Stage Fright

Stage 'Excite'ment

I prefer speaking to a group of 1000 people than 5.  Both are quite appealing though. There's an energy to an audience that thrills me. 

Chipmunk Crusader

The War is On

No, those little critters are not cute. They are guerilla warriors who have become my arch-rivals around my property. Want to trigger my dark side? Mention these tiny crazoids.
