About Me

I am a freelance journalist, essayist, photographer and author. My writing reflects a kindred bond to living Life Downeast along with the occasional Random Thoughts on life and society in general. An avid reader and an award-winning book critic, Maine Reads, I enjoy sailing, hiking and many other outdoor pursuits.

“We all take things for granted, life should not be one of them.”
