I was born and raised in Westchester County New York. I was permanently transplanted to the Bay Area in 1992.

In high school, I competed in basketball, tennis, and skiing. Now my favorite “sport” is dining al fresco at local restaurants and wineries! I adore salads with bold vinaigrettes, seafood of any kind with a great glass of wine.

Cooking for my family and friends brings me great joy with plenty of laughter for all!
