I live in Los Angeles with my wonderful and sexy guitar-wizard of a husband and amazing daughter. I have been in SoCal for most of my life with a brief stint in Vienna, Austria, which I miss terribly. My mother is a professional craft seamstress and doll-maker who taught me to sew when I was a child. She started doing craft and ren-faires when I was eleven and I was bitten by the costume bug. My whole family fell victim to my new passion and I'm sure it was years before they started to look reasonable. Now that I'm grown, physically anyway, and Halloween is for my daughter, not me, I still indulge my desire to dress up at faires and on stage. I now costume staged operas and make myself at least one, big dress a year for the SoCal Renaissance Faire.

My real love has always been music which I got from my Father, a talented audio engineer. I have studied and performed opera for over 20 years and have also been in a couple of rock bands in LA, which is great fun! Opera will always be my first love but the personalities of rock musicians are a lot more... well... laid back, shall we say. HA!
