I grew up in NYC. I have since lived and worked in Paris, a kibbutz in Israel, New England, New Mexico. I settled in San Francisco for several years but migrated to Oregon for a teaching position in Salem. I missed the water. I have been an avid sailor and scuba diver with many hours at the helm in SF Bay, the San Juan and Gulf Islands and the Caribbean, or under the sea in the Caribbean. I’m partial to warm water. When I retired 12 years ago I moved to Astoria. It’s been a long journey. The water is cold, but the people are warm and the views are unbeatable. I am currently working on turning my doodling into an art form.
