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: Catapult published my essay about meeting a man while I was traveling in Trinidad who was days away from his own euthanasia. In September, I had an essay called Urban Race Car Driver’s Manual, about fast cars and my father, published by Full Grown People. And there’s this, a practical piece in December for The Seattle Times on optimizing your LinkedIn profile so that it gets recruiters’ attention.
- 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).
