It’s Words All the Way Down

Formerly an in-house managing editor in NYC, today I’m a free-ranging freelancer based on the Olympic Peninsula in Washington.

Offline, I’m a birder, hiker, kayaker, cyclist (MTB, BMX, and vintage 3-speed townies), slow runner, and housemate of three dogs of various origin.
