About me

Industry Arts
Occupation freelance writer and musician
Location Tacoma, WA, United States
Introduction I love life in the Pacific Northwest. I was born in the Puget Sound area and have always lived here with appreciation for my surroundings. I thrive on the salt air and sounds of the gulls. Fresh snow on the mountains, my own muffled footsteps on a forest path, bird songs, and wildflowers all bring me joy. I even love the rain. This is a region filled with unsurpassed natural beauty and fascinating people whose stories still wait to be told. Good Life Northwest is about quality of life. I emphasize the arts, interesting places to visit and things to do, Northwest history, and the people who impact our region in positive ways. I like to picture you smiling when you read it and going away feeling better when you're done.
Interests writing, reading, playing music, creating and enjoying art, studying and writing about history, shopping for antiques, doing needlework, taking walks on the beach
Favorite Movies Give me anything created with intelligence, breathtaking cinematography, memorable characters speaking from a finely crafted script, and a message I can savor at the end. To me a great movie should allow me to live vicariously in a completely different place or time. I want to take away from it a new perspective or deeper awareness.
Favorite Music 1920s and '30s jazz, American roots music, old time banjo, R&B, classical, folk, Celtic, and rock and roll. I like it all.
Favorite Books I couldn't even begin to write this list, considering how many favorites I can think of. I read everything from poetry to non-fiction. With my natural curiosity I love to learn, but can really get into a good novel too.
