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 essay titled In Defense of Tonya Harding was published by DAME Magazine. Given my own history as a competitive figure skater with an abusive mother, I see Harding a little differently than most. I hope you’ll give it a read. And in May, I wrote a piece for The Seattle Times about dads who took family leave from work.
- Book stuff: I’ve completed my memoir manuscript, and am working on a novel about an American photojournalist in South Africa during the Mandela elections (cause hey, I was a Canadian development worker in South Africa during the Mandela elections).
