Welcome to my website! I am a writer, small publisher, teacher, and musician. You can use the links above to check out my writing, books, music, and classes, and also to learn how to contact or follow me.
My main areas of interest are:

On choosing a career
I am a big believer in play-based learning no matter what the age or learning level. My classes for kids assume that we all learn best when we are actively engaged in a playful, creative way. Click here to learn more about my approach to teaching writing.
