I'm Cruzio's Ma. Along with the company Chris and I have been raising 3 excellent children and a great many cats.
I hail from New York originally, go back frequently to smell the concrete and eat the bagels — but I love Santa Cruz and the California coast, it's the most beautiful place in the world and I wouldn't live anywhere else.
My Real Name:
West Side Santa Cruz
