Story
Tagline
Connector. Internet lover. Friend.
Introduction
Seasoned communicator, wordsmith & media obsessive; veteran of Sili Valley roller coaster. Started out as a quintessential D.C. word nerd; fell in love with Pacific life, have tilted westward since. Live by the golden light of the Bay Area.

I split my time between screen and online life and the joys of art, words, ideas, dogs and friends. And truth be told, I'm into wry.  
Bragging rights
Have managed to eke out a good living in the word biz on one platform or another.
