[Cassandra] I was born in 1960 in Glens Falls NY. I was raised in Santa Barbara CA and educated in Santa Cruz, New York, and New Haven. I am, by turns and in constantly shifting order, partner, parent, teacher, friend, poet, sibling, performer, daughter, student, musician, and member of the audience.
