I was born and raised in California. I studied music at the San Francisco Conservatory of Music, graduated, and moved to England to pursue a career in opera. I performed in semi-professional and amateur theaters all around London, and had a blast swing dancing, making friends, studying yoga, natural medicine and bodywork.
When I came back to the Bay Area I knew I had to live in Berkeley and immediately fell in love with my Vine Street Cottage. I've been here 5 years, building my massage clientele, practicing singing and piano at home, performing in shows, cooking and enjoying the sun (I missed the sun living in London).
My neighborhood is one of the best food corners of the world, it's called the Gourmet Ghetto. I feel so spoiled by the quality of food we have here, farmer's markets happen on an almost daily basis all around Berkeley and San Francisco. The people are friendly and open, and there is so much creative talent everywhere.
I am happy to offer my cottage over long weekends to enable your fantastic holiday in the Bay Area! When I travel I seek out B&B's or homes to stay in, because this helps me feel the culture or the personality of the area I am staying in. It's more fun to be a guest than a tourist.
