Richie DeMaria is a Santa Barbara native who feels very fortunate to be working for the Santa Barbara Independent. He is grateful for the opportunity to write about music, movies, food, the outdoors, and interesting people. He enjoys spending his slim amounts of spare time with family and friends, practicing yoga, hanging at the beach, making music of his own, and escaping to the wilderness. With crownlike appendages, red fins, and a greatly elongated, undulating body, he is also believed to be the origin of many sea serpent tales.
