Well traveled in Europe, Africa as well as the United States. Love food and fitness, and can cook different foods lots of different ways! Also very knowledgeable about politics in the United States and how the United States is perceived internationally. I also write fiction. I have started a blog (which is a work in progress) that will focus on trends, politics and food. Like many others, I found the presidential elections a turning point in the United States. It impacted the way we see ourselves as individuals and how we fit in the new era. The sense of self as much as the new politics and economy will have much to do with how we shop, where we live, and what we do. Technology has a factor in all these issues and I like to incorporate that in what I do. Technology is the vehicle of our attitudes and habits despite the fact we don't think about it.
