What inspires you most?

I have always been interested in history, politics and other cultures, which lead to discovering the world through travel, that in turn resulted in having lived in six countries … bonjour, hello, Guten Tag, 你好,こんにちは !!! I also really like to start my day with some time spent on either a tennis or pickleball court, or when the snow falls, find my way to the slopes!

What is your favorite meal to cook at home?

I love to cook and when the outside temperature is a bit cooler, I won’t hesitate to make green curry chicken or a seafood paella; but when the temperature rises, it’s all about the grill!
