A writer is somebody who writes. I’m a writer who writes essays and poems about nature, place and memory. Currently, I’m working on a collection of essays and poems, entitled “My Midlife Mudseason.”

Formerly, I was a journalist covering environment, immigration and commercial fisheries (the original “threebeats”) for The Standard-Times daily newspaper in New Bedford, Mass. My writing has appeared in The Standard-Times, The Cape-Cod Times, The Boston Herald, National Fisherman, Inc. Magazine, The Worcester Telegram, The Atlanta-Journal Constitution, The Austin American-Statesman, The Dayton Daily News, and Harvard Business School Publishing (case studies).
