To quote an old Hollywood saying I was truly “born in a trunk” (to parents in the film industry).
My mother was born in Italy and worked as an actress there before emigrating to America in 1946. She married my father after moving to Los Angeles.
For more than 40 years my father worked in Hollywood as a film executive, including as executive vice president and general manager of Columbia Pictures back in the ’50s.
I worked in commercials and film as a kid. Later after high school, I joined my Dad in the film industry instead of going to college. I went back to college in my early thirties to study photography. I also toured with the Beach Boys.
I pursued many careers after Hollywood including restaurant management, real estate, travel agency, medical esthetics, and what I’m doing now, protecting small businesses and families with affordable legal and identity theft protection.
I’ve traveled extensively, been married four times (currently happily married to number 4) have a wonderful adult son, three lovely step-daughters and three adorable step-grandchildren. I am the proud parent of a Shih-Tsu/Jack Russell Terrier, Roma who is my endless source of love and joy.
I am a passionate lover of music, travel, photography, the ocean and of course, film.
