I was born in NYC, raised in DC, lived all over including Boston, MA; Venice and Sta. Monica, CA; Granada, España; Tampa, FL; Wilmington, NC; and now Gulfport, FL. I traveled around Italy a couple of years ago and would love to go back. Stay tuned…

I have a freelance practice that combines my various interpretive vocations, both visual and verbal: translation, editing, writing, paleography and consulting.

Aside from words, I have many passions, especially singing, playing, performing and listening to music, painting in watercolors, gardening, cooking, entertaining, easygoing nature hikes, art museums, travel to out-of-the-way and local but relatively unknown places. I am thrilled that I’ll be able to return to all of these passions, little by little.

Originally I came across Steepster by looking up “Ruby 18,” because I loved the sound of Assam and Oolong together. A lovely member, who lives close to where I once lived, sent me a sample about a year ago! I could only tolerate one cup of black tea per day so it became all the more special! Now, aside from some delicious Oolongs, it’s all green for me, especially flavored with jasmine. Plain green, or jasmine with other flavors such as orange, just do not get it. I enjoy a smattering of herbals. Once cooled, I refrigerate fresh mint tea from my garden in summer, spring & early fall — but decaf teas do not cut it in the morning.

Steep away, me hearties.
