About Me

Writereditor, and social media manager. Sometimes a project manager.

Formerly a deskbound managing editor in NYC, today I’m a free-ranging freelance writer, editor, and social media manager based on the Olympic Peninsula in Washington. Or, as we call it here, the Upper Left.

Away from words, I’m a birder, hiker, kayaker, cyclist, slow runner, and wrangler of three dogs of unknown origins.
