Born in 1948 in the Garden State of NJ, I cherish my east coast heritage. I spent the summers on the white sandy beaches of Lavallette learning to build the best sandcastles and to paint the best clam shells to sell on the boardwalk for a penny. I rode the ocean waves from sunrise to sunset. I spent winters in my hometown, Caldwell NJ. At the age of 24, I left the east and ran off to California for new life adventures and lived throughout the southwest and northwest states. And that was just the beginning of a life filled with trials, tribulations, love, joy and learning.
