What I read

Blogs: The Write Life, The Creative Penn, www.globalbodyweighttraining.com, Be a Freelance Blogger, and several others. I also frequently visit food blogs to find recipes.
Books: mostly non-fiction about health, self-development, and parenting.

Side projects

Created a fundraising race for the local Food Bank (a 10 Kilometer race with fitness challenges along the way while participants carried bags of rice in a backpack, with the weight getting heavier at each challenge).

Ideal team

I like working with teams that encourage creative freedom and who understand the value of flexible work schedules. At the same time, I understand the importance of deadlines and am more than happy to fulfill them.
