Born in the San Francisco Bay area, I've lived in Santa Fe since 1978. I'm married to Thayer Carter and we have a son, Forest, who lives in Portland, Oregon. I founded and now run a non-profit called Youth Media Project ((website hidden)), whereby we teach the craft of digital storytelling and the art of listening for a socially responsible world by working with educators in high schools, colleges and with other non-profits to facilitate youth productions, primarily for radio broadcast on our regular show called Audio Revolution! My husband is a woodcut and painting artist. Our son, now 26, is a musician. We love the out of doors; hiking, biking and simply being. We've traveled in Europe, SE Asia, Latin America and enjoy simplicity and quiet spaces. My husband is allergic to cats and this is our only limitation in where we stay.
