I am a mother of 2 (18, 22 as of 7/2013). I have a background in the arts and arts administration. Currently I run a bi-monthly speaker series for Senior Citizens and work part time for a patent agent and I am a community volunteer. I am also active in the local very rich dance/general arts scene in Santa Cruz. My husband and I moved to Santa Cruz from Paris, where we lived for 5 years. Originally we are both from NY and we were married in the Brooklyn Botanic Gardens in 1989. I love to knit, study flamenco dance, read, and travel.
