Writer (novelist, screenwriter, marketing communications professional) with a fiery left-wing political bent and a passionate love for the Pacific Northwest. Bellingham is my adopted home town, and I love the Cascades, the Salish Sea, the islands, Puget Sound and hiking everywhere in Whatcom and Skagit counties.
I love long conversations deep into the night, intelligible and otherwise. I love movies, read incessantly, and question everything. I was a performing artist in New York, and lived there right out of college. Although I was born in Louisville, Kentucky, I have adopted Washington State as my home.
My travels have taken me all over Europe and the UK. I am especially fond of Scotland - and have visited the Isle of Skye five times. I love traveling on my own, and have met the most extraordinary people.
I enjoy spirited discourse, am strongly averse to organized religion, and have no use for religion in politics. I'm a Virgo, so I can seem rational.
One of my favorite quotes: "The only cure for boredom is curiosity. There is no cure for curiosity." - Dorothy Parker
