I was blessed with two avant-garde, Bohemianish parents, both native San Franciscans. My dad was a bibliophile, who had thousands of books and it was my mom who gave me the love of music. Every morning during our continental breakfast we would listen to the hits of the early 60's on the crackly radio perched above the Frigidaire. In May of 2014 in honor of the centennial of her birth I decided to make musicians the emphasis for my expo at the GMAC in Paris. I attended every concert I could- on the streets of Paris, local bars, classic theatres-all with pad and pen in hand. While I was capturing the performers during a church concert in Paris, the cultural director was spying on me and asked to use them on a flyer.
