About Me
Studied Architecture at U.C. Berkeley and have lived in the Bay Area for many years. Appreciate fine things including notable architecture and well conceived and maintained gardens. I love peace & serenity, the quiet enjoyment that my property on nearly an acre provides. I am an experienced world traveler. I like to swim, ski, hike and surf. I appreciate "The Arts". I am a considerate and thoughtful person. I am a real estate professional who specializes in architecturally significant properties.
