I am a graphic/web designer and photographer. I grew up in Phoenix, AZ. As an adult I have lived in New York City, Paris, New Hampshire (briefly) and, as of 1989, here in San Diego. I was born in France (although I only lived there until age 3). I speak some French...assez bien! I've travelled throughout Europe, Argentina and Chile. I've also been to Hong Kong, Australia, Bali and Egypt. I love to cook. I enjoy a good wine, my favorites being Zins from the Lodi, CA region. My home is filled with my ceramics and other art. I love being outdoors, hiking, walking, discovering new places, investigating back alleys and roads.
My boyfriend, Patrick, is a contractor, craftsman and a musical instrument builder. The instrument he builds is unique and one-of-a-kind. Search for "Array mbira" and you'll see something you've probably never seen before. Needless to say, music features big in our life. We love jam sessions, even with those who don't "play." (I'm not trained, I mostly just noodle around, but we manage to get some good stuff happening at times.) If you are musically-inclined, Patrick has many instruments to share with you: the Array mbira, a Balinese trompong, a Japanese koto, gongs, guitars, keyboards...or just sit back and enjoy the jam.
I am also a volunteer for the California German Shorthaired Pointer Rescue. My old guy, Bruno, recently passed away, but I am now fostering GSPs from time to time while they wait for their new homes. I only foster one dog at a time, each with their own personalities. Some get along well with other dogs, some not as well, so if you have a dog with you, please contact me for compatibility details. Sorry, no cats please. Most GSPs are natural born hunters.
Let us know if you would like to visit. And we'll do the same!
Looking forward to meeting you.
