Peter and I have lived in Santa Barbara for close to twenty years, raising our two children here. I'm originally from England and Peter's from New York. We both love to travel but we love coming home to Santa Barbara, which is a very special place.
In my professional life, I'm an appellate criminal defense attorney, doing work that I love in my own small, part-time practice. When I'm not working or spending time with friends or family, I'm involved in a number of local community organizations, plus I like to run on the beach, cook, and putter around my garden. I also read a lot, fiction and non-fiction, and I'm a big fan of the New York Times which I read every day,
What else? We have two cats and a large German Shepherd, who keep us on our toes....
