The arts have been a part of my life since I was a child. Music, books, art and visits to museums were a constant while I was growing up. Today, as an adult, those things continue to inspire me. They are the things which I enjoy the most. I listen to music, write, take photos, and read every singe day. In addition, I attend concerts, dance performances, and operas as much as I can, and am a member of local museums. When I am not participating in arts-related activities during my free time, I work as a marketing and communications consultant, primarily for arts organizations in southern California. My goal is to help as many arts organizations as possible, get their messages out to diverse audiences.
