  • About blakestatn:

    I am a professional GWM who enjoys live theatre, eating out, people watching, seeing off-the-beaten path independent movies, discussing current events, reading the newspaper, walking around beautiful Lake Michigan, taking in summer street fairs, grabbing cocktails with friends, singing with show tunes, playing cribbage, and painting icons.

    I am originally from the Pacific Northwest (Seattle area), lived for a summer in Singapore, traveled to Switzerland and Germany, and have been to every region of the United States except the South. I love all kinds of food, but here are some of my favorites: Chinese, Indian, Greek, Italian, Thai, Ethiopian, and just about anything that is fried.

    Last year I decided to start using my tax return each year to travel (why in the world did I wait so long to do this??!!) So this year it's Rome and Venice in April.

    "If your everyday life seems poor, don't blame it; blame yourself; admit to yourself that you are not enough of a poet to call forth its riches; because for the creator there is no poverty and no poor indifferent place." (Rainer Maria Rilke)

  • Hobbies:

    Painting, playing the piano, gardening, reading ... OMG that sounds like I'm getting old! Researching ancestors...last year I finished writing a book about my dad's family, descended from Holy Roman Emperors and captured by the Shawnees...now you're intrigued, right?

  • Favourite places:

    Snoqualmie Falls in Washington State, Yellowstone National Park, San Francisco, the Field Museum in Chicago, Mount Rainier, and I loved Munich when I visited last year.
