stuff about me

Jane-of-many-trades? Perhaps. But in truth, my curiosity is greedy. Chronicled below are some experiences that have helped shape me as an editor and writer, never mind as a human being. Among their gifts, I count engagement, empathy with audience, rigor, associative capacity, and passion.
