I am a native Californian. Love bicycling, cooking, reading, traveling, spending time with my cat. I love the out of doors and being in places that are wild and remote that make you sense how small you are in the world. I volunteer with a local wildlife rescue group. Now retired, I had my own graphic design company and have designed just about anything that can be printed. The last twenty years of my career focused mostly on gourmet food packaging for mostly smaller, often family-run, food businesses. Graduated from Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, CA in 1976.
