Profile Updated: March 7, 2016
Residing In Chicago, IL USA
Occupation Free-lance writer; retail sales of food products

Graduated (barely) from Michigan State University with BA in English. Worked in ski resorts in Switzerland and Austria. Then stumbled into a three-month temp job at the Detroit Free Press as a telephone receptionist.
That gig launched a 34-year career in journalism. Worked full-time as feature writer for newspapers in Detroit, Chicago, Hong Kong and Los Angeles.
Joined Peace Corps in 2006, and served as a volunteer in English education and tourism development in Albania and Republic of Georgia. Then, worked for Peace Corps as a recruiter in the Chicago/Midwest office.
Now, I enjoy working fun gigs (selling olive oils and vinegars), writing occasional free-lance stories, playing with recipes, hitting the gym and planning my next travel adventure.

School Story

Sister Lucy warned me in freshman year that I would never have any future with languages because of my Ds I earned in her Latin class.
