I was born and raised in the S.F. bay area. I grew up in a very politically active family and witnessed the civil rights and Vietnam War protests as well as the birth of the counter-culture movement first hand. I was inspired to work in politics as a campaign official for the Democratic Party in numerous national and local campaigns during my school and early work years. After awhile I burned out on politics and shifted my energy to local concerns where I could make a bigger difference. I got involved in animal issues and in homeless issues. I began working for a local small town newspaper before eventually moving on to radio. I continue to work in radio and media and stay involved in pet rescue groups and various local social issues. I have lived in central and northern California most of my life and now live inÂ Modesto, CaliforniaÂ and work in Mendocino County which has made for a lot of driving and money spent on gas.
It is my mission to advocate for, andÂ be a facilitator of, open communication in the most effective forms available. I have a passion for compelling storytelling and honor working with creative, dedicated individuals focused on the greater good of the project.
