About Me

I have been a professional writer for nearly 20 years. The bulk of my current work has focused on nonprofit organizations, particularly the challenges of working in low-resource, high-stress environments. However, I have also written extensively on the arts, pop culture, and how they reflect contemporary political discussions.
