A San Francisco native, I attended college in Southern California. After graduating from UCLA, I returned home to the Bay Area where I have been teaching music, reading, and directing the children's choir at a Catholic elementary school since 2001. I have been married to the love of my life since 2007 and together have two handsome young boys. While I love my hometown of San Francisco, I do miss the sunshine and every year like to travel to a warmer place. I am also an organizing guru, neat freak, foodie, conscious consumer, primal eater, and historical traveler. Two things I believe in: treat others the way you want to be treated and reading is fundamental.
