I am a native of Pennsylvania and have lived in the Los Angeles area for 16 years. I am a classical musician by trade but also have a passion for marketing. I handle all of the communications for La Crescenta Presbyterian Church. I am married to another professional musician and have two children -daughter age 8 and son age 6 who both attend Palm Crest Elementary School. I am an active runner, mountain biker and am a news junkie - cable news, NPR, WSJ, Economist and LA Times. I have travelled all over southern California and spent substantial amounts of time in various locations for work and my conclusion is that we live in the nicest area of all with the most friendly and down to earth people up here in the foothills.
