Lindsay's other half I have a geek streak. I'm geekier than most of my friends and family. I'm a problem solver and can fix things. I love planning trips! Put me on the road and I'm happy. I'm a reader, not so much of a watcher. Wait, I do have a weak spot for independent film, anything Woody Allen, and a few good series like Mad Men or Breaking Bad.

I'm an Ashtanga yoga practitioner and practice almost daily. It's what helps keep me balanced and sane.

I need to have many projects going on at once, personal or professional, or I'll bore quickly. When I get interested in a new activity, I'm a bit obsessive about it until I master it. I recently launched a new project, custom-made Mei Tais (baby carriers) called Lleváme Cerca. I love design, sewing, and beautiful fabrics. Teaching myself to design children's clothing and sewing is an obsession, along with felting and crocheting amigurumis.

I'm fluent in Spanish, study Portuguese and plan to dive into other languages. I went through Army Basic Training once. I'm an animal lover, even though I'm allergic to my furry friends. My first pet was a hermit crab named Hermie (how creative!).

I'm a wife and a Mom of two wonderful kids, Julia Mai (4) and Leo Florian (1).

About this blog I decided to start this blog to explore my professional world - public relations, communications, recruiting, career advice, etc.; however, this is a personal blog. The views and opinions expressed here represent my own and not those of Paradigm Staffing or anybody else unless explicitly stated. Also, my thoughts and opinions change as I learn more and develop my understanding about the subjects and issues written here. I consider this a necessary consequence of having an open-mind and I hope to explore this more through my blog and dialogue with my readers. This blog just provides a snapshot of the knowledge, views, and opinions that I hold at a particular point of time and these very well may change.
