A little bit about me

I grew up in the mountains and valleys of inland Southern California (in the often-overlooked empire between LA and Palm Springs). After I grabbed a degree in Berkeley, another in New York, picked up a partner in Dallas, ditched Texas for Seattle, and gave birth to a daughter in Los Angeles, I returned to my home turf. I spend my time loving and being loved by, teaching and being taught by, and caring for and being taken care of by those two beautiful people. I’m a minimalist, a lover of live music, a writer, a designer, a reader of books, an eater of food, a drummer, a wanderer, and a dreamer.
