I am a longtime Los Angeleno, formerly working in film and television production, now a freelance writer, a job I mostly love. But I'm not so in love with L.A. lately, which is why my family (me, my husband and our two young kids, plus a dog, a cat and one tadpole-about-to-be-a-frog) is about to move to a farmhouse in upstate NY. I'll be chronicling that adventure, along with my culinary explorations and my reading (and anything else that strikes me) here on culturecloud.
