Gypsy Innkeepers

Aired on The California Report Magazine on Friday, February 26, 2010.

Lots of folks fantasize about spending their lives on the road, traveling wherever, whenever. But few do it. On a recent trip to Desert Hot Springs north of Palm Springs, I met a couple in their 50s who really did take to the road. This aired as part of the series "Turning Points," profiling Californians who make life-altering decisions.

Modernism Week in Palm Springs

Aired on KQED's The California Report Magazine on Friday, February 12, 2010.

Besides the great weather and gorgeous mountains, is also boasts spectacular examples of mid-century modern architecture. This weekend, fans of modern design will flock to Palm Springs for the fifth annual Modernism Week. I paid a visit, and learned about my own grandparents' role in the creation of Palm Springs' style.
