I’m curious about most everything—people’s stories, politics, the news of the day—youthful, sensual, colorful, offbeat, sometimes brave n' bold, an evolved soul, so I've been told. Anyway, I try to be emotionally present and tune in to nuances in nature, language, the rhythms of the body, the heart.
After spending 25+ years as an editor/writer for a Berkeley-based public policy consulting firm, I'm now self-employed (and loving it!), focusing on issues related to postsecondary education and the U.S. workforce, or what’s left of it.;) No “job” has been as joyful, and challenging, though, as raising my three sons (now fully launched), sometimes solo.
Among other pleasures, I enjoy film, reading/writing fiction, exploring the Bay Area’s peaks and valleys, political satire, CAL Performances, Berkeley Rep. I love New York always—not just in June—jazz, Broadway shows, a Gershwin tune. I’m drawn to the north coast when the rain is hard, the ocean, wild, crossing the International Date Line (not to be confused with international dating), discovering distant lands, cultures, treasures.
Strike a familiar chord? If so, I'd very much like to hear from you. . . .
