I'm a native of Portland, OR. I moved to the Bay Area about 5 years ago. I'm a drama teacher in the Berkeley School District and with the San Francisco Shakespeare Festival. And I do a little acting on the side. I love my job(s) and I love Oakland, my current hometown. Other things I continually enjoy: dogs, dancing, traveling, good food and wine, meditation, and connecting with people. My aim is to live my life with my whole heart, while keeping my feet on the ground.
