Hometown & State

Harlem, New York

Favorite event/activity

My favorite activity is long walks, whether through my town, a new city, along hiking trails or in the mountains. Every step outside my door is a new adventure. Who will I encounter? What will I see? Even when I’m walking in familiar places, I might find something new – maybe a hawk flying low in the sky or simply just seeing the sun setting from a different angle.

Something you are proud of

I am most proud of my sustained relationships and connections with people from both my personal and professional life. The childhood friends, the former colleagues who are friends, the people with whom I volunteer, the people who are my “morning commute” bus riding community, and people I meet when I’m out for a walk. I am delighted to now be part of the Project Morry community and looking forward to new relationships and connections.
