I am a Wimberley resident, transplanted here after a lifetime in Austin Texas. I have been self employed virtually all my life and my entrepreneurial interests have ranged from the culinary arts, to environmental preservation, to health and human services. I’m a a chef, I opened a restaurant when I was 17, and I have plans to write a cookbook in the near future. I worked for many years doing sales and marketing for Yvon Chouinard and Patagonia Inc. Then I became a licensed clinical social worker and specialized in families and health care. You might say I have a broad interest in the arts and humanities. Currently I spend my time making hand forged jewelry, carving sculpture, and painting.
