It all started with a diary.

Since documenting what I had for lunch and dinner on January 7, 1979, I’ve made writing a lifelong habit.

Today, after 27 years in the non-profit field, I’m a seasoned wordsmith. Peruse my resume here.

Passions: Listening. Rescuing food. Long-term friendships. Pushing for change. Green design. Attempting to see from other people’s points of view.

My Secret to Happiness: Gratitude.

Pleasures: Roadside fruit stands. The Chicago Bears. Sledding. Cinema. Mad Libs. Forests. A flaky biscuit. Smiling at people on the street.
