Personal Interests (in no particular order):

Writing, swing dancing (East and West coast), hiking, road biking, happy houring with friends and colleagues over the age of 21, snuggling with my furry babies (Zorro, Jazzy and Mojo), Buddhism, theatre, visual art, movies, hot debates on Facebook (& during happy houring with friends and colleagues over the age of 21), travel, classic rock, the blues, especially the blues.  Don’t even come to class unless you’ve gone to Pandora and listened to Buddy Guy’s Rememberin’ Stevie.  It’s a prereq, but I can’t seem to get it included in the catalogue…

Current Ringtone:

Eric Clapton’s Layla.  Future Ringtones:  Jackson Browne’s Running on Empty and Rodrigo y Gabriela’s Tamacun (all prereqs).

Astrological Sign:  Libra (but who takes that stuff seriously?)


I’m looking forward to seeing you in classes.  And, consider taking my creative writing classes!  We have fun.  :-)
