My husband and I are both in our mid-sixties and are retired form public service. I was a instructional television producer for a major university and my husband was a graphic artist for the City of San Diego. I began my professional career as an actress in San Francisco and later became a costume designer. I hold a Master of Fine Arts Degree in Theatrical Design and I was a resident designer for a number of ballet and modern dance companies in San Diego for many years. My husband is a graduate of San Francisco Art Institute. We love art, history, music and western and asian culture. We have many books, paintings, sculptures, and lots of ceramics that were made by my husband. I am a Buddhist and you will find lots of iconography in our home. We are vegetarians. I speak Spanish and a very little French. We both lived abroad as children, I in Mexico and my husband in Japan. We love to entertain our small group of friends. We enjoy playing folk instruments: Appalacian outoharp, guitar, dulcimer, and banjo.
