It’s Words All the Way Down

Writer. Editor. Social Media Manager.

Formerly a deskbound managing editor in NYC, today I’m a free-ranging freelancer based on the Olympic Peninsula in Washington, aka the Upper Left.

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