My Life in 8 Words

Author Revealed

Q. What is your motto or maxim?

A. Take risks, overextend and always dress the part.

Q. What’s your best quality?

A. I'm comfortable in any setting and can make a friend even where everybody is in the opposite camp!

Q. What trait is most noticeable about you?

A. Sociability.

Q. If you could meet any historical character, who would it be and what would you say to him or her?

A. Ernesto "Che" Guevara - "Do you feel that los pobles de la tierra are in better hands today because of the election of Barack Obama to the presidency?"

Q. What is your biggest pet peeve?

A. Pundits interpreting cultures that they have never lived in for the world without allowing local voices to speak for their own. I think this peeve also extends to internal sub-cultures (socio-economic, race, immigrant etc.) - and maybe I need to develop a kinder, gentler outlook, but it does drive me bonkers.
