Hello. I live in Oceanside, about 35 miles north of San Diego. I'm primarily vegan and add fish once in awhile. I'm a (volunteer) Executive Board member of the Tariq Khamisa Foundation, whose mission is to prevent youth violence. I'm currently (volunteer) Chair of the Grants Committee of the Oceanside Charitable Foundation. OCF distributes funds to local nonprofits who work to improve others' lives.
I do yoga classes 4X/week, bike or cycle whenever possible, grow garden veggies, always cook delicious whole foods, and retired four years ago after 24 years operating Pacific Bakery, an organic and yeast-free bread operation with national/regional distribution.
I'm very involved in community activism and politics and in 2012 worked as volunteer coordinator for four local candidates, 3 of whom won. I own rental properties, mostly in my own neighborhood, and make sure everything is maintained in very good condition. And I like visiting Santa Barbara, San Luis Obispo and San Francisco via Amtrak and use public transit when possible. Any questions, please ask.
