I have a deep, abiding interest in web communications and technology, user experience, and information design. This grows out of a lifelong curiosity about how things work and a desire to figure out a way to make them work better and do more for more people.
I am an avid reader and a lifelong writer. I am a film buff who has seen more than 75% of the AFI Top 100 movie list. I am also an irregular contributor to Cineblog…because it’s not about the popcorn.
My published short fiction has appeared Lavender Ink and The Reflecting Pool, two literary magazines which are now defunct.
I am the holder of a “Best of the Festival: Feature Screenplay” award from The American University. I have also participated in and “won” National Novel Writing Month in 2004, 2005, 2007, 2009, 2013, and 2018.
For fun and exercise during the winter I throw stones at houses at the Potomac Curling Club.
