SHE WAS BORN IN SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA, ALTHOUGH HER FATHER'S CAREER RELOCATED THE FAMILY OFTEN, EVENTUALLY TO FRANKFURT AT AGE 11. IT WAS DURING THE FIVE YEARS SHE LIVED IN GERMANY THAT SHE WAS ABLE TO EXPLORE AND EMBRACE HER PASSION FOR PHOTOGRAPHY, ART, FASHION, MUSIC AND TRAVEL.

AFTER RETURNING TO THE US AT AGE 16 SHE TOOK A MORE CONVENTIONAL PATH IN BUSINESS AND ACCOUNTING. ALTHOUGH SHE ENJOYED THAT CAREER , IT DIDN'T TAKE LONG FOR HER ARTISTIC SIDE TO TUG HER BACK INTO THE WORLD OF ARTS. IT WAS DURING THIS TIME SHE DEVELOPED A PASSION FOR INTERIOR DESIGN WHERE SHE ENDED UP WORKING ON THE EAST COAST FOR MANY YEARS. HER PASSION FOR EUROPE EVENTUALLY BROUGH HER TO THE SOUTH OF FRANCE WHERE SHE SPENT THE NEXT 10 YEARS. ALTHOUGH SHE CONTINUED WITH DESIGN WORK AND TRAVEL, IT IS THERE SHE DEVELOPED A KEEN INTEREST IN THE VAST AND FASCINATING WORLD OF FOOD AND WINE.

NOW RETIRED AND LIVING IN CARMEL, CALIFORNIA SHE STILL PICKS UP HER GUITAR AND PLAYS A FEW TUNES EVERY NOW AND THEN WHILE CONTINUING TO EXPLORE HER ARTISTIC SIDE. HER MOST RECENT LOVE IS HER TWO DOGS, A DOBERMAN PINSCHER AND BIEWER TERRIER. ALIX LOVES THE OUTDOORS, SPORTS AND STILL TRAVELS EXTENSIVELY.
