From Seattle, WA now living in metro DC. With many productive years under my belt working with NPR, I now head up another creative non-profit organization - this one in the visual arts. I love to draw and paint but my passion is tennis, and finding and welcoming guests into this peaceful home, situated in the heart of Bethesda, is always a joy.
