Hi, I'm Matty Muddypaws, Michael and Roy's daughter and guardian of this site. Just follow the links below to find your way around.
You really want to know? Seems like there are some very curious people out there. Well, I guess in this case, you do deserve some information about myself.
Here goes: I was born on a late October day in 1963 in the beautiful city of Vienna, Austria. There I was lucky enough to enjoy a nice childhood. After a rigourous education at a Catholic Highschool, (no evil nun stories here) and a few years of training in Tourism Mangament I moved to Germany at age 21 for two short years.
Since the summer of 1986 I call sunny Southern California my home where I have selected a beautiful spot just south of Los Angeles and close to the beach called the South Bay.
My life basically revolves around a few important people and interests (I guess everyone's does).
Most important is my partner Roy with whom I share. . . ,well we share all the things we are supposed to and maybe more.
By trade I am a Marketing and Promotions Professional in the Tourism industry, something which I have done practically since I left school (for the first time at least). It is also something I truly enjoy.
Roy and I met just over five years ago during California AIDS Ride 1 where we had the pleasure to get to know each other over the course of a week riding our bike's from San Francisco to Los Angeles. (above with Los Angeles major Richard Riordan who has graciously supported the AIDS Rides since the beginning)
Other interests of mine include politics, music and literature.
A couple of years ago I also started taking some courses at Santa Monica College in order to train my brain cells a little. Unfortunately none of my European schooling counts towards a University degree here in the U.S., so I have decided to continue my studies at Chapman University working towards a degree in Organizational Leadership.
Guess that's more than you really wanted to know. . .
