Hello there. During this pandemic pause, the elves in the basement are tinkering with ideas for my relationship with words and where to broadcast them. The focus will likely be on personal development, society, and culture.
I was raised on SoCal beaches and soap operas. I wrote & performed a monologue that won a scholarship to San Diego Junior Theatre and studied/performed at the Old Globe Theater before going to UCLA for a B.A. in English. I’ve published poetry and prose in journals, a textbook by Oxford University Press, and a New York Times-bestselling anthology.
My background includes managing a boutique financial services firm, serving as Treasurer of a non-profit, lead generation in the event marketing industry, modeling for lifestyle/catalog print work, and teaching English abroad in Japan. My current hobbies include reading economic articles, pretending to cook like a proper adult, dancing with myself, and whisper-singing would-be karaoke songs at 2am so the neighbors don’t hear me. Stay safe!
