Do Good. Tell Stories. Be Mindful.
I am a writer of people and places. I write personality profiles in Q&As or long-form narratives.
I also write the blog A Mile a Minute.blog about mental health. I am a thought leader and subject matter expert on bipolar disorder and mental health. I successfully live with bipolar 1 disorder and anxiety for over 20 years.
I try to find the meaning of life in each person I write about. I have covered authors, politicians, newscasters, poets, scientists, foodies, bloggers, researchers, professors, artists, actors over the course of my career. In addition to journalism, I write for corporate and non-profit web sites, annual reports, and social media.

Writing is about finding meaning and truth in each person or place. It’s about taking your natural curiosity and turning it into an obsession. It’s about style, language, drive, and persistence. It’s about coffee…and tea of course. Lots of it! Writing is about seeing and living in the present moment. Too often, we are not really present in our lives. As Virginia Woolf wrote, we live in a “cottonwool society.” We wear cotton gazes through the daily chores of life. I’ll help you to be more present in yours.
