Michael and I moved to Asheville in late 2011 and built our arts and crafts cottage in 2013. I grew up in New Orleans and we enjoy getting back to the “Big Easy” as often as possible. You’ll see flavors of New Orleans around our home. My work as a licensed esthetician has taken me to Atlanta, St. Lucia and Saint Simons Island, GA as well as New Orleans.
Michael grew up in the Atlanta area and has lived and worked around the world. After spending 3 1/2 years in western Ethiopia, he lived in Indonesia for 7 years, then Indianapolis for about 15 years.
Michael’s work in international nonprofits has allowed us to travel together in Asia, Africa and South America. You’ll see hints of those travels in our home. Since my father was born in Sicily, we have enjoyed reconnecting with family back in the “old country.”
I am a bit of a cinemaphile. In addition to my collection of old movies (even some old video cassettes - - and yes we still have a VCR in addition to our DVD player), I enjoy the oldies and classics on TV and Netflix. I also enjoy cooking - - occasionally resorting to some of my old "N’awlins" dishes.
We enjoy gardening. I specialize on the designing and Michael handles a lot of the physical work - - at least outside. I love creating and tending miniature gardens that enjoy the year-round beauty of our sunroom.
Since Michael recently retired, we’re doing some extra travel. And my years of dancing on stage and theatre just wouldn't let me go, so I continue to enjoy tap and modern dance.
