I am from Pennsylvania (US) originally and spent a lot of weekends growing up in New York city or alternatively hiking the Appalachian Trail near our home. For the past several years I have traveled throughout the world producing events. I have also worked as a professional writer and researcher, photographer and educator. I currently work for a gourmet dessert company and produce short films in my spare time with my husband who is an editor, actor, singer -songwriter and formerly a fine art furniture maker. He is also a sailor! We have a wonderful, large sprawling family but no children of our own.
