Born in Iowa, I currently live near Seattle. Prior to this, I lived in Oregon for most of my life.

Lately I’ve been working as an artist, part-time, with some of my work exhibited at the Seattle Art Museum, the Gretchen Schuette Art Gallery, the Washington State Convention Center, and The Ninety. photoI’ve also been performing, giving speeches, singing in a choir and working with the Seattle Symphony‘s artist-in-residence Trimpin. Performing at Benaroya Hall in December of 2015 was a thrill and a privilege.

I have written for a variety of publications and sites, including the Oregon Grange Bulletin, the Oregon Public Affairs Network, the Depoe Bay BeaconTownHall.com, Salem Monthly and WillametteLive.com. Currently I am working on a few books, mostly non-fiction, which I hope to write on a regular basis.

My interest in journalism began on a whim. I was a sophmore in high school and needed an elective. Most classes were full. There wasn’t much available. My first choice, keyboarding, was a disaster. So I finally settled on the student newspaper, and thank heaven I did. I loved it and became editor of the paper during my senior year.
