My American story started when I came to America with my parents on a freighter in 1948. My parents met in a bomb shelter on the Island of Malta where I was born. They decided to come to America for a better life. We sailed into NY Harbor and took the train to San Francisco where I lived until 1972. I ended being the oldest of 8 children.
I started working at 11 and was self employed my whole adult life. In my 30's I decided to become a professional photographer and enrolled in various photography schools. I opened my first studio in the 80's in California. I moved to So. Oregon in 2008. I also moved my studio and worked until I retired.
I raised 4 daughters, I have 7 grandchildren and 8 great grandchildren. I love traveling with my boyfriend, enjoy family, friends, hiking and my home. LIFE IS GOOD!
