I have a rather diverse background and interests. A native Californian, I lived as an International Banker and Corporate Finance executive in New York, London, Prague, Singapore, LA, SF and, sort of, Moscow. Of them all, Tahoe is the only place I feel truly at home, which is probably because I am so active outdoors in sports. But I also love the changes in season, the mountains and the lake. I serve on 2 non-profit boards in Tahoe. My daughter lives with her husband and my 2 grandchildren in Truckee, CA, so I get to ski and play tennis with them often. I think most things are more fun done together, but also think it is good for partners to have their own interests to bring alternate experiences and perspectives into the relationship on an on-going basis.
