AC is an East Coast transplant who became rooted in the SFV. “Yup”, AC said “I found a place in North Hollywood years ago, and though I’ve traveled the world over this is the place I call home. Well, also Massachusetts because that’s where I was born. I think of Hawaii as my second home, but I don’t own property there so maybe I can’t count that. I was going to say Paris, at first cause I am very comfortable there, but then, you know I’m American and I don’t want to be too pompous. So, yeah, I guess the San Fernando Valley is home.”
A street scholar, majoring in hard knocks and common sense, AC, attended night school receiving a high school diploma. With a thirst for knowledge, AC continued education included many, many on line courses and seminars from selling beets at your local farmers market and how to shuck clams to Introduction to wine.

I’d been unemployed for over a year when I was offered an opportunity with a company that had a vacancy that’d been open for three months. I’ve been told that my new position had been a revolving door prior. I found it was both a hint and a warning.
My father passed away two years ago. We weren’t close. My parents divorced when I was nine, he lived out of state so we never got close. There was no love lost between him and my mother.
