Hi. I live in Encinitas, CA (near San Diego). My interest in Bonsai began early 2000 when I owned and operated a Garden center in Indianapolis, IN. Mark Fields began teaching at my facility and I got the bonsai bug. For a myriad of reasons, I did not come back to it until October 2019. I currently have around 40 trees in my collection. Most are in development. They are all my favorites. Right now I just want to learn as much as I can and become a proficient bonsai enthusiast.
