I have been living in the Bay Area for the past 18 years, both in San Francisco and now in Berkeley. I own and manage a Green Building retail store in Berkeley - or maybe I should say that it owns me! Many of the features in my studio are earth-inspired: Natural clay and lime plasters, thick wall insulation and radiant floor heat for warmth and comfort.
Whenever I have free time I love the outdoors, be it a hike in Point Reyes, riding my bike around town or working in my backyard. I am also studying chinese medicine and acupuncture, (very part time) just for fun and interest.
