About Me

I began my career as a newspaper reporter and editor, which led me to the Columbia University School of Journalism where I earned my master’s.

That experience changed everything. I fell in love with New York City β€” which surprised me β€” and I decided to stay. However, finding my niche there as a working journalist was daunting, which also surprised me…. although it probably should not have. I was saved by a lucky break that opened the door to many wonderful years working on the creative/marketing side of the television entertainment industry.

The day finally came when I realized that my love for the insanity of NYC was gone. The west coast beckoned, and I made Portland, Oregon my new home. I’m pursuing a book project that I’m super passionate about β€” a subject of natural history that has fascinated me for a long time: tortoises.
