So, Who am I? pals-me-at-uf-game.jpg

For most of my life I’ve lived in sunny, Palm Beach Florida, U.S. While in Florida I had the privilege to teach social studies/history at Christa McAuliffe MS. Prior to teaching I was briefly a Public Relations Practitioner for Carnival Cruise Lines in Miami. I am proud to share I graduated from the University of Florida in 1996 when we won our first Football National Championship, GO GATORS! (Pic of me & pals at a game).

≈ In August of 2006 I moved to Colorado. I am really enjoying the change. And although I do miss the Florida beaches — the majestic mountains and rocky terrain here in CO are truly magnificent.

Family

tn_white-water-rafting1.jpgtn_white-water-rafting1.jpgMost of my Italian, Florien family lives in Colorado. My brother who has three children lives here; and my mother & father both moved from Florida to Colorado. They are retired (been happily married for 51 years). Also, my sister who has one grown son moved here in 2006.

Hobbies & Fun

I like just about every outdoor activity from scuba diving, saltwater fishing, boating, white-water rafting, working-out, snow skiing, hiking, bun-gee jumping, to camping at Rocky National Park. As for sports I love football! I’m a big fan of the Broncos, Dolphins, Gators, & Colorado Buffaloes. 

My favorite food is Italian. I would really like to travel and see Florence & Venice someday. As for music, I enjoy listening to pop rock and ole’ hard rock classics such as ACDC.

    Yeah, fishing in Florida is great. I used to love taking my boat out and going trolling for Dolphin. Sooo much fun! 😉 I miss that type of game fishing.

      Hi Paul,
      I manage vacation cabins in McCall, ID, and I’m looking for a whitewater rafting photo to use on our website. May I have permission to use yours? If so would you respond to my email? Thanks for your consideration! Sheri

    Ciao,
    You can visit Italy anytime. The story of your parents (51 years together) reminds me of that of so many good Italians, especially the old-school ones. I hope you get the chance to visit Firenze e Venezia soon. It’s not that difficult. On the other hand, I would love to move to Colorado one day 🙂

    Stammi bene.
