Born in New Jersey, the only girl of five children in a Catholic, blue collar family. I grew up in the 50's and 60's in a time of post WW II, finding our way, Viet Nam, loosing our way, The Beatles, Civil Rights, Women's Liberation, The Assasination of John Kennedy and Woodstock.

I was the first among the grandchildren to graduate from college. I spent my junior year of college living, studying and traveling in Mexico. It was an experience that forever changed my life. As a result I moved to Austin, Texas to finish my degree, be able to speak Spanish and live in a Mexican/American community.

During the middle years, I married three times, currently to my amazing wife Lisa for almost twenty years. We have three children, Felice, Cullen and Dylan.

At sixty years old, Lisa and I are preparing for the next phase of our lives, returning to live in Mexico. It is an exciting adventure that overwhelms easily. We have traveled the world and are planning our new home base to be Bacalar, Mexico. This is truly an exciting time in our lives.
