1. Home is where your story begins. Please tell us a little about yours.
I feel like i have 2 homes. My hometown of Rock Island, Ill. which is on the mississippi river across from Iowa. Its got about 35,000 people in it but is part of the quad cities which is 2 cities in Illinois and 2 in Iowa so its kinda big. The town next to mine is where John Deere tractors come from. My family is mostly all still back there. I go there a lot. My dog lives there part time. I love it. I didn’t like it at times growing up and wanted to escape cause I felt misunderstood but now I am so sentimental and sappy for it. I had a great childhood riding bikes, sledding, going to the swimming pool. It was real humid in the summer and still the smell of the fresh cut grass on a balmy August day brings back a flood of memories. I went to parks, train bridges and corn fields to drink beer with the seniors when I was a freshman! haha. I had a pretty midwestern “American” upbringing.
Now i live in Ojai, Ca. Its a town of about 8,000 people 20 minutes east of Ventura. Its mountainous and lovely. Lots of organic farms and spiritual stuff going on here. I like it cause its quiet and I have a great back porch I sit on and do my emails and drink wine. I like to hike, bike, cook, organize my house and take my dog for walks.
