I hope your summer is getting off to a great start. I just wanted to let you know about some of the things that I have happening this summer.
First I’m doing something quite different but very exciting for me. I’ll be performing (on the cello) with the Viver Brasil Dance Company in a program called The Gift on the Water/Omi Odara.

The Ford Amphitheatre is located on 2580 Cahuenga Blvd. East Hollywood, CA.
I’ll also be teaching some glass bead making workshops at the UCSD Crafts Center in La Jolla, CA. Next Steps in Glass Beadmaking on July 12th and August 16th and Introduction to Glass Beadmaking on August 23rd.
