I like busy days and quiet nights. Love growing plants on my window sill, taking a day off to read a book cover to cover and swimming in the Connecticut River.
In the winter you can find me playing volleyball, making snowmen or mashing together societies, technologies and psychologies into a multitude of short stories.
I enjoy taking things apart to see how they work (or aren’t working). I’m always looking two steps ahead, which is probably why I like technology, psychology and science fiction so much. I also like exploring the back roads and hidden corners of the Valley, especially when there’s someone to share them with.

I've had to run away from bears who wanted my picnic basket . . . twice, no really.
