I have a soft spot for The Four Seasons - about 5 years ago my family started a tradition to go to their Boston location for dinner every Christmas Eve. Since we've become regulars, the staff quickly learned about my vegan diet and now has an option for me each time I'm there - what started as a plate full of vegetables has turned into delicious dishes like creamy risotto, which you can see in this video. Thus, I was thrilled when a friend of mine told me that The Four Seasons Los Angeles was adding vegan items to their restaurants' menus - I knew I was in for a special experience but boy were my expectations exceeded.

I am thrilled to be part of The Neat Fleet, a group of specialists who are passionate about using Neat products to reduce paper clutter and increase their productivity. After I did a video on Neat Desk last year around tax season, I was asked to be Neat's eco fleeter and I am featured on their site now in honor or Earth Month! This is a great opportunity for me to teach businesses and their employees how to make their offices more eco-friendly.
My boyfriend lives in San Francisco, and he's totally worth doing the long distance. But every time we travel to see each other some things cross my mind:
- It takes a lot of time out of my day if I'm traveling (3 - 9 hours each way)
- It is expensive ($100-$150 round trip)
- Traveling isn't very eco-friendly
