I'm an artist and mother of a seven year old. My husband and I divide our time between LA and NY depending on work assignments. We're avid readers who enjoy the outdoors, making good things to eat and travel... but mostly we like to joke around and be with our kid, our dog, and our friends, and listen to and make music. Simple stuff...
