Biography
I was born and raised in Cleveland and Columbus, Ohio; lived in Texas, Iowa and Washington, DC, and in 2004 moved to Santa Fe. I've traveled to 21 countries, looking at clouds from Africa to Outer Mongolia, and now, at 7200 ft above sea level, I delightedly live in the clouds, the most magnificent objects of my obsession!
