Writer, reporter, hiker, photographer, ponderer of Nature and Existence.

From a young age, I have felt called to write, and at this point in my life I work as a reporter/news editor for a weekly newspaper in Eastern Kentucky. The job takes up most of my time, but I am on a quest to find ways around that.

I am also a refugee from the Halls of Academia, a lover of all kinds of music and of one good woman, a wilderness photographer, and wanderer in the woods. Mostly I just like the quiet, but friends are important to me, too.
