About Me

I am a writer and editor. My journalism, personal essays, and short fiction have appeared in numerous magazines and newspapers, including Fast Company, the San Francisco Chronicle, the San Francisco Review of Books, the San Francisco Bay Guardian, The Last Page and the Santa Clara Review. As an editor, I have collaborated on more than 75 non-fiction books, reporting case studies, developmental and line-editing, fact-checking and securing rights and permissions.

Why do you write?

I write because I like to write. I like to share my words, and I like others to share their words with me. I find joy in people learning something from what I write, and I find joy in learning something from what others write.
