Tuesday, cannot come fast enough. As Vice President Biden joked on the David Letterman Show last week, we all want this election cycle over with. The United States has one of the longest election cycles among democratic countries. Now, with Superstorm Sandy delivering the all-too infamous long-expected October […]
I love to travel, try new foods (both simple and "exotic"), ingest caffeine, and watch political news coverage. Im a big pop culture junkie who isnt afraid to say she loves "In Touch" Magazine! A social marketing expert and psychologist by training who works in the public health field trying to bring a little common sense to it all.
All the world is my television and I like to provide commentary on it.
120 hours and counting. By the end of this all, it will have been 288 hours. Yes, 288 hours without power. I will have gone through 12 days of trying to move forward without any light. I will have slept in 5 different cities in trying to keep […]
Each day post Sandy, I have spent either freezing, searching for charging stations or making my way to multiple hotels across state lines. Throughout my post Sandy experience, has been the adventure of trying to get a team back to New York and trying to get the office […]

Dear future me: Today, October 30-the day after frankenstorm, I am hunkered down in the local library’s children section surrounded by stir-crazy kiddies, glazed-eyed adults and strewn-about power cords. Everyone watching that percentage icon on their electronics. My nails are bitten down to the core, my belly is […]
At the end of my first visit to Puerto Rico ever, I was followed out by Hurricane Hugo. That was the scariest plane ride I had had until my Las Vegas return trip recently when we had to land in a different city. Hurricane Hugo, was a rare […]
Me, a poor girl from the South Bronx, got a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. As a teenager-still very much in my formative years- I got the chance to live abroad in the beautiful and somewhat haunting city of Barcelona, Spain. I had the great fortune of living near […]
Have you seen the latest research out of University of California, Berkeley (my alma mater-but don’t hold that against me or the article) on animal social behavior? As a social psychologist, I have been trained to be interested in group behavior and its social consequences –the field did […]
Growing up in the South Bronx I dreamed of traveling the country in a Winnebago. The Price Is Right just made it seemed so fun, sexy and free-spirited. I thought those were the coolest thing ever-you mean you can ride in a car and still use the restroom? […]
