I wrote my first short story in second grade. Ever since, writing is the activity that brings me the most comfort, joy, and agony--often all at once.
I've done many "writerly" things over the years: journalism, speechwriting, communications. Won some awards along the way. (Woo-hoo!)
As I enter my years of wisdom (read: growing older), I am doubling down on taking creative risks and sharing creative journeys with like-minded souls around the world.

I have lived in Baltimore, Maryland for over 30 years and it is now my beloved home. Baltimore is a fantastic city in which to live, work, and play. I try to give back by directly supporting local artists, nonprofit cultural organizations, and artistic youths by delivering workshops and as a judge for arts-related programs and contests.
