I grew up in Morro Bay, California, called the "Central Gold Coast". I graduated from Morro Bay High School, and became experienced in surfing,watching skateboarding, fishing, horseback riding, and in general goofing off most of the time. I came to Fairbanks, Alaska in 1980, mostly looking for employment/career. I began working right away, at "Lamonts", in which I remained there, for over 10 years, as the Operations Personnel Manager.Then I went on to work for the State of Alaska, for another 10, as a Work Force Development Specialists. In the meantime, I married and we celebrated our 20 year wedding anniversary. We have 3 beautiful children, ranging in age from 24 to 10 years of age. I have since stopped working in the traditional sense. I have ventured into the art scene, where I have taught painting in my studio, sold my art-work, and have enjoyed experimenting in all the medias. Over the past years, I have found myself always curious about the law and how it works. I decided that it was time to go back to school to get a Paralegal Degree, and do my artwork on a smaller scale. I haven't figured out a way to incorporate them both, but I have plenty of time to muse on this.
