What is your proudest achievement?

Designing, completely on my own, a net-zero energy home for a friend’s mother to retire in.  The house allows her to make up all the heat/electricity that she uses throughout the year.

Who is the greatest love of your life?

My three legged golden retriever Bear.  He is the sweetest most loving dog and everyone who meets him falls in love with him.

What is your favorite yoga position?

Pigeon pose.  I could sleep there!

When and where are you happiest?

In the sun, by the water, with food in my belly, preferably Mexican food!
