A five year Florida resident I spent much of my adult life near Seattle, Washington. I’ve lived and worked in Panama, Kenya and Rwanda, traveling to 52 countries. After a career in the nonprofit sector, international humanitarian aid and community development, I spent the last 12 years as a consultant. A large part of my work is technical writing: grants, proposals, reports, evaluations, and program descriptions.

This past year I tried my hand at creative writing and I am in the editing stage of a crime novel.
