I'm an East Coast transplant to Los Angeles and have happily lived in Southern California for over 20 years. Retired, but used to work as a consultant in human resources training and development. My true passion has always been singing and opera; I am a member of a chorale in Los Angeles and have appeared as a a non-singing supernumerary in many professional LA Opera productions.
Well-educated, well-traveled (lived in Germany for 1.5 years), I speak German fluently and French pretty well, as well as a bit of Dutch and Swedish (I was a German language major in college). I love cooking and eating good food, good conversation, all kinds of music but foremost opera and classical music. Other interests include theater, travel, books, film, mid-century modern design, architecture, and history.
I am very happily married to another man; we've been together for over ten years and blessed by the state of California for over five.
