I've lived in Utah, France, California and - most recently - North Carolina. Now I find myself back in my home town - a place I never thought I'd return to live, but has grown on me. It's where my family is - and, as it turns out, my heart (hello mountains and desert climate!)
The last 10 years I've been blessed with the opportunity to do my dream job - report for public radio stations and, often, NPR on a national basis. Few people have the chance to be paid for doing what they truly love. Now I host a daily news interview show on Sirius XM Radio. For someone as curious - and often nosy - as I am, it's the perfect gig.
I'm looking for good conversation and nice eyes. The most attractive men are those with a broad worldview and a thirst for knowledge. I ask questions for a living, so prepare to be peppered if we meet up. But I guarantee it won't be boring. If you're willing, I'd love to dispense with small talk and dig into what fascinates us. Hopefully, we'll find some overlap. I really like reading (mostly non-fiction and long-form magazine features) and eating ethnic food (esp. Indian, Thai and Japanese.) I speak French and love visiting Paris, but my preference is always to go somewhere really exotic and unnerving - the bigger, more foreign the better. Bangkok blew my mind. Istanbul is my favorite city. Prague is mesmerizing. I'd love to visit Kabul and Tehran, but I'm not crazy about war zones, so those will have to wait. India is on my list. I also really like staying close to home and hanging with family - my nieces and nephews light up my days.
I like dumb comedies when I'm in the mood and always get popcorn when I go to the movies. I play the piano and the accordion and belt out the oldies in my car. My musical tastes range from Lyle Lovett to The Carpenters to punk rock.
