About me

Gender MALE
Industry Communications or Media
Occupation Recovering Journalist
Location Goobertown, Arkansas, United States
Introduction I'm a Cancerian: seriously into comfort, security and acquiring and hanging onto my stuff. I cherish the past, enjoy the hell out of the present and provide for the future. My favorite places are the Colorado Rocky Mountains and the Big Sur coast of California, but most of the American West is just fine with me. I have an abiding appreciation for good writing, humor, self-sufficiency and a sense of honor.
