I live in my pied de terra on Bowen Island British Columbia Canada. I write and have a blue chow chow doggie. She is my 3rd rescue chow chow in 9 years. I've travelled quite a bit and my best year was 'staging' in 14 restaurants in la belle France and in one restaurant in Milano. I have been a successful chef de cuisine. My bachelor degree is in food and textiles - i like cool crocheting, natural fibers, oil paintings, reading, anything 'bout France and particularly Paris. I've walked across Spain on the camino too. I cater. I was the chef for the MacLaren racing car owners in Monaco. I river rafted through Alaska, BC, and the Yukon, canoed the Amazon. Driven 'going to the sun road' in Montana with my dog. C'est ca!
