I discovered Postcrossing while looking for postcard exchange programs for my students. I used to teach elementary students English as a Second Language (ESL). I retired in June of 2016.
I love to travel, taught high school for a year in the Marshall Islands, and have a sister that lives in Australia. Have informally been collecting postcards I've received since I was a child.
I was born and raised in the beautiful city of San Diego, California. Currently I live in the greater Los Angeles area. Visiting Hollywood is not a great attraction for me, but frequenting Disneyland is. Ask me any Disney questions or advice inquiries you might have! I have been an extra in a Hollywood movie though - "Seabiscuit", a film about a famous racehorse. It was filmed at the racetrack he actually raced at (Santa Anita), which is in my hometown - Arcadia. I am a big Los Angeles Lakers fan too.
I have been married to my college sweetheart since 1981. We have two children, a boy born in 1991 and a girl born in 1994. My son is currently a PhD student in Marine Biology at Stanford University, and my daughter recently received her Master's Degree in Molecular and Cellular Biology from the University of Washington, and is teaching Biology in high school.
I welcome any postcard you choose for me, but I do especially enjoy:
Disney Theme Parks
[For those from the US - Your state capitol or "Greetings from (name of state)"]
PS: If you want to, please consider write your postcrossing user name on the postcard you send then I can have a look at your profile before I answer during registration.
