About Me

Outsource photoI originally planned to major in journalism. I figured I’d be writing feature articles, mostly about people and their lives. I ended up teaching high school English for a couple years before making my way into journalism via the “back door.” I’ve written for community and daily newspapers, city government, nonprofit agencies, and business organizations.

In another life, I’ve imagined myself a rock star … which, in a way, led to the creation of “Chasing Pirates.” (Seriously, for the longest time, I wanted to be a rock star like Pat Benatar, but it wasn’t in the cards.)

I like music. I like researching and learning. I like writing. I like being real. I hope you enjoy my blog!
