You Found Me
“Each friend represents a world in us, a world possibly not born until they arrive, and it is only by this meeting that a new world is born.” -Anaïs Nin
Welcome. I’m so glad you’re here. Take a sec and introduce yourself, if you’d like. Because not every conversation can start in the Costco food court. Although many do. I’ve had a few there myself.
- Recent publications: My April story on political action training for The Seattle Times is here. And this one is a bit heart-wrenching: I met a man while I was traveling in Trinidad in 2013, and he was days away from his own euthanasia. Catapult published my essay about this event, which has stayed with me, and I suspect always will.
- Book stuff: My memoir is in that awkward stage of waiting to meet the editor who loves it and wants to buy it. It really wants to settle down in a long-term relationship. In the meantime, I’m working on my next book, a novel about a photojournalist in South Africa during the Mandela elections (cause hey, I was a development worker in South Africa during the Mandela elections).
