I've been haunting my Santa Clara, CA home since 2009. I learned the basics of set building and lighting from a B.A. in Theater, and now continue to learn techniques through experimentation, trial-and-error, online tutorials, and the kindness of the Halloween community (who is always willing to share advice). I now average over 350 trick 'r treaters ever year at LA CASA SCARY and the neighborhood keeps encouraging me to go on every year. Thank goodness for my FIENDS!

The Early Years 2003-2008

Every story has a beginning and this is where my passion for Halloween took hold – in a haunted San Francisco flat and a suburban home next to a cemetery and down the street from the Winchester Mystery House! With just some simple decor here and there, this humble start led to what would become a major hobby ...and website ...and blog.
