Biography and Education
I created hundreds of newsletter articles for small private schools and churches as a free-lance writer. Then I spent too many years ghost writing executives’ talking points, team writing corporate newsletters and annual reports, creating marketing campaign or human resource materials, and creating train-the-trainer manuals. My pedagogy is heavily influenced by my professional and corporate writing experiences. While my teaching absorbs the majority of my efforts, I am committed to completing and publishing unfinished manuscripts, being a devoted baba to fabulous twins, and training my Akita rescue to behave.
