Grew up on the Central Coast (San Luis Obisop, CA) and spent much time in the Pasadena area through my teen years, visiting my grandparents. During my college years I ventured north via Big Sur to San Francisco, where i spent a decade getting very acquainted with one the most gorgeous places on earth - from Big Sur to Sebastopol and everywhere in-between. By the beginning of the new millenium, I made my way to the southernmost parts of the West - San Diego - where I have been living in the colorful neighborhood of Little Italy since 2005. I find myself returning to Big Sur and the Santa Cruz mountains often and love experiencing many areas of our country, as well as, many parts of this globe. There is so much to see and experience.
