Based in Vancouver, Canada, I learn about today's world through writing and photography. My work often focuses on travel, healthy living and philanthropy.

I partner with global brands such as IRONMAN triathlon and Rock 'n' Roll Marathon series; print and online travel publications like West Jet Magazine; Vancouver's nonprofit consultancy, LOVEfundraising; and entrepreneurial companies in the IT and sports business industries. My background includes living in Chattanooga, TN and Seattle, WA; working in the US and Canadian nonprofit sectors for over two decades; and earning a BA in communications/documentary arts.  

I write: Articles | Profiles | Essays | Website content | Fundraising case statements | Donor communications | Grant applications
