Welcome to my website. I’m an editor and writer currently living on the California Central Coast. Think San Luis Obispo but a little farther south toward Santa Barbara.

Nipomo is now my home and, believe it or not, was an answer on Jeopardy. The question: “Where is the best weather in the U.S.?” Less than a mile from my house is the original campsite where famed photographer, Dorothea Lange, took the iconic photo of Migrant Mother that became a symbol of the Great Depression in the 1930’s.
