In a nutshell
Hi! Thanks so much for visiting! My name is Abby McKee, and this is my website.
I am addicted to soft t-shirts, cheese, and hugs. I also love classical music, books, my friends, accents, cooking, boats, and a near-infinite number of other things. I hate olives and oysters, whistling, and the word “hella.” I do not take myself seriously most of the time, and neither should you. I am married to the Horse Whisperer, whom I find to be brilliant, unintentionally hilarious,and always awesome. There are many things in life that I cannot do, but I sure did pick a good guy to marry.
I am the artistic director for a San Francisco landmark that shall remain unnamed – though it will occasionally be featured photographically. Prior to my time as an arts administrator, I was a professional classical flutist. I still perform and teach occasionally. I love both parts of my career, and I feel incredibly lucky to spend my working time pursuing my passions.
I grew up in the South, and while I love San Francisco, I often find myself confused by various cultural phenomena… particularly the West Coast’s etiquette relating to the RSVP. I recently realized that I never feel more Southern than when in San Francisco, and I never feel more San Franciscan than when I’m in the South. My accent is intermittent, weirdly enough.
I am a virtual collector of beautiful things, an avid cook (and eater), and an ardent list maker. This site features many of the above, and more. Sometimes things here won’t make sense. You should probably take comfort in that fact.
Welcome, friend. I am so glad you’re here!
