|After graduation, I wandered off to SC thinking I
wanted to be a professional trombone player – discovered I was wrong and
took a “practical” degree in Medieval Japanese History instead. Stanford
offered to pay for grad school, so I took them up on it and eventually
returned to L.A. with a Masters in International Communications. This
lead to a 20-year career in advertising, with lots of Japanese clients.
I met my future wife while introducing Mitsubishi Motors to the US, and
we both enjoyed living in Europe for four years while I ran Nissan’s car
& truck advertising for 24 countries. Twenty years of advertising seemed
like enough, so we came “home” (to South Carolina at least) where I
picked up a teaching credential (while learning to translate “Southern”)
and started a new career as a high school music teacher. Along came a
grandson, whose gravitational force brought us back to the West Coast.
Not being able to face life in Orange County where he lives, we settled
in Seattle but a couple of over-caffeinated years had us missing the
sun, so we moved to sunny Escondido in north San Diego county where I
took a job at Orange Glen High School. I’m still there after 11 years,
and still loving life (yep, even as a high school teacher!). So yes, it
has been a long strange trip, but it’s never been dull!

Married to Eric Wildgrube. Two beloved
children, Travis and Casey. Two adored dogs, Foxxy and Sarge. Visits to
Twain Harte help keep our sanity at a manageable level. Volunteerism is
a way of life...we would be rich if it paid but alas and alack.
John Muir High School imprinted a way of being that has never been
compromised. My mother and father were responsible. I'm am indebted to
all those who supported our fight for equality. You will never be
forgotten, especially Mr. Albert Lowe, Vernon Jones, and Marge and Joe

not abandon us.
