WELCOME TO MY “holistic” (personal and business, and left-brain/right brain) TransFranSisco website – See below:
I’m sharing on this site (1) stuff from my right-brain such as performances (acting, comedy, singing, plays, writing, poems, visual art, songwriting, essays etc.) (the tabs begin with RB) AND (2) stuff from my left brain, such as information about taxes, financial planning, investments, insurance, business consulting, etc. (the tabs begin with RB) . The tabs at the top of this page could help guide you. I believe that my full-time life as a female since 1/1/11 has enabled me to better integrate these 2 sides of my brain and be more creative, productive and enable me to share myself and help and enjoy people more effectively. Please contact me. The best way is to my cell at 914.589.1013. Otherwise see CONTACT tab. (See ABOUT ME for bio and info about me).
