Writing | Gardening | Craft | Facilitation


I’m an active member of a local writing community called To Live and Write in Alameda. For the past four years, our group has grown from 3 to nearly 600 people. We gather online and in-person to encourage one another’s craft. Founder and creative coach Bronwyn Emery hosts a monthly storytime for adults (called “Alameda Shorts”) every third Thursday at Books, Inc. in Alameda, January through October.

Here are selected works I’ve read in front of an audience.


I’ve transformed my lawn into pollinator-friendly, native California landscape. I plan to point to before and after photos.


I work with mosaic, fiber, glass, and acrylic.


I herd cats at work.
