About me

Industry Arts
Occupation writer and artist
Location Miami Beach, Florida, U.S. Outlying Islands
Introduction I'm a world traveled published author, artist and photographer. I also lived in Southeast Asia, Japan and England for a decade with lots of travel to places like Australia,Korea,Hong Kong,Cambodia, Laos, Thailand, India, Bangladesh, Pakistan and Europe.Travel has shaped who I am, opened new worlds and cultures and inspired much of my art and writing. I'm very much of the philosophy you can't take it with you but you live life the fullest here and now. Experiences are more valuable that lots of things. I also love animals, especially cats. Naturally I enjoy cooking, mostly Indian food but I also make killer Thai and other cuisines. Live, Eat, Pray.... To contact me: 305 531 0075
