Still true: "Better a galley slave in Turkey than a freelance writer in America." - Marx in a letter to Engels, commenting on working for the New York Daily News
I've worked as a freelance writer and communications professional in metro Detroit for more than 20 years. My writing interests include community change, nonprofit work, education, poverty and food issues, travel, beer and other oddities of life.
published more than 80 articles in print and online publications since 1997; founded and organized the Detroit Wig Out (2009, 2010, 2011); learned how to ice skate better last year; and am enamored, entertained and puzzled daily by my 10-year-old son
