I was raised in the South Bay, for over five decades now, in beautiful Hermosa Beach California. I love Surfing, Painting with Acrylics “scenes of beach and tropical themes”. I have Volunteered in numerus local organizations HB Chamber for St Patrick’s Day Parade that my mother co-founded, as well as HB Kiwanis, HB Rotary and the Hermosa Beach Historical Society, I was a big part in establishing the Surf Museum in the HB Historical Society as well as the Surfer’s Walk of Fame. My step father was a two term Mayor of Hermosa Beach back in the early 80’s, that gave me a wealth of knowledge in the city.
