I moved to LA in the nineties to pursue a career in acting.
- I starred in a couple of tv commercials, but I never really got my big break.
I did end up in the movie industry behind the scenes. I was really gifted with my hands, so I started working with the set design crew. My career started to blossom after that and I was hired to work on three different projects in the 1990’s that included big name A list stars. I saved a ton of money when I was working in show business. I married a sweet guy who was a cameraman and I had two children right away. I fell working on a set a few years later and that was the end of my career. I started using cannabis products to help with the pain. It was legal for medical use and then legal across the board a few years later. Recreational marijuana laws are one of the biggest reasons why I am still living in California. It’s expensive to live here, even though I live in Winnetka. Winnetka is a nice and quiet neighborhood outside of LA. Winnetka is the perfect place to raise a family. There are great schools and theater programs and plenty of activities for the kids. I often miss my mom and dad and my family, but they all live in the midwest. I would love to go home, but cannabis isn’t even medically legal in the state where I grew up. There is no way I can go back to living like that after living here for the past thirty years.
