Meet The Host

My husband Michael and I have lived at Cliff House since 2011, when we did a major remodel here. We own a racing sail batten company and I am a pattern maker in the LA Fashion industry.
I love the design and creation of textiles clothing and building custom stuff. My home and trailer are an extension of my desire to have stuff that no one else has and to share them with new and old friends.
We enjoy hiking and sailing. We love to hang out on our porch with friends, a glass of Cabernet and a home cooked meal, watching the evening light fade away into a beautiful sunset and then the lights come out below.
