I was born and raised in Los Angeles, CA. I have a 16 year old son that is a sophomore at CHAMPS Charter High School. I also have a 22 year old daughter who just graduated from Sarah Lawrence College in New York, with a degree in creative writing. I'm very proud of both of them. I have a big family that I live close to in the Hollywood area. On most weekends we can be found hiking in the hills, looking at art, going to the beach, or cooking family meals together.
