I recently went shopping with my niece as she was getting some swimsuits for her daughter this summer. I was discussing with her about my own daughter is now a mother of a toddler and how hard it must be to shop for a growing child.Continue reading “Summertime and parenting”
It’s the 50th anniversary since the release of The Godfather. I remember a stir when this movie came out, though I was too young to really understand it. Growing up in an Italian / American family really gave it gravity.Continue reading “Take The Cannoli”
Music has always been something special in my life, something that held power. When I was very young, there was a channel on the television that had the programming schedules for the channels in our area. There was music playing in the background that I felt move me to tears and I actually began sobbing. My mother came into the room in a panic asking me what was wrong and all I could say was how beautiful the music was.
Like many, I had a unique opportunity during the pandemic to learn more skills and things about myself. This included music theory, getting into reading for leisure again and learning more about art.
I came to L.A. on a dare in 2002. Previously I had been a bookseller running an independant bookstore on the east coast for a decade. During that time my interest in computers and programming was piqued. After several dead-end jobs in data-entry, I quit my minimum-wage job to try my hand at doing web development professionally instead of as a side-line. Since then, I’ve been part of several wonderful companies, working with amazing people.
I live in L.A. county with my book collection, my bass guitar, Barbie, and a very spoiled cat.
The sites I feature here now reflect sites I’ve worked on more currently.
I plan to also post occasional ‘blog’ posts related to other interests, mainly music, art and literature.
I hope you will enjoy your visit!
