Location: California, USA
I am more of a music lover and supporter than musician. I do sing and play piano and guitar - just not at a professional level. I am president of my church choir and on the board of directors of Men Alive, the Orange County Gay Men's Chorus. I work for a pension administration firm (PARS) in Irvine, CA, as their Director of Marketing Information Systems. It is a great company with a lot of really super people. Since late 2000, I've been very involved at St. Mary's Episcopal Church in Laguna Beach, CA where, having spent 40 years as a Presbyterian, I REALLY appreciate the liturgy. I feel like I'm hearing it for the first time! I also greatly enjoy singing in the choir under the direction of Bob Gunn, a remarkably gifted pianist and music director. I am the fortunate mother of a wonderful son (Isaac) and daughter-in-law (Megan), two of the most wonderful people you'd ever want to meet! I come from a large, loving family that has lived in Southern California since the turn of the last century. My great-grandmother (a descendant of Robert E. Lee) was born in LA, and my great grandfather came from Kansas in a covered wagon just after the Civil War. Other great grandparents came from Norway a little later. Our family Christmas parties are very dear. I live in a beautiful condo in Irvine with my two (naughty) Pugs, Maisie Grace, how Sweet the Hound (fawn) and Minnie Cooper (black). I'm waiting as fast as I can to become a Grammie.
