What do you do:

– For work?                 

I am a ghostwriter for professionals. I take the ideas, expertise and stories in your head and turn them into crisp language so you can share your brilliance with those who matter most.

– For fun?

I am turning the Pasadena Municipal Code into haiku. I figure it’s the ultimate challenge for someone who likes to make complicated things simple.

Your contribution to the optimism playlist?

Rise by Katy Perry

Why did you pick this song? What does it do for you?

I love a good sports anthem. To me, this one strikes the right tone for these Olympics, as people from all over this troubled world come together in Rio. They come from different places but they share the same commitment to rising to the very best they can be, to pushing the boundaries of what’s possible. As the song says:

I won’t just survive

You will see me thrive

Don’t doubt it, don’t doubt it.

Victory is in your veins.


Where can we find you?
