That’s my wife. Her name is Linda.

We settled in Camarillo soon after my failed attempt to take Hollywood by storm. She encouraged me to continue to develop my passion for painting, if for no other reason, to help retain my sanity through all the auditions and rejections. My claim to fame is I was anonymous businessman #3 standing in a lunch line for one of those Grisham movies.

She was a dancer and taught some privately but, when we felt the timing was right, we scraped every penny and took a loan out for this restaurant.

So…how’s that Sangria?
