A growing sense of urgency


As the flawed 2016 presidential election of Donald J. Trump continues to wreak havoc on democracy, decency and humanity, I am more determined than ever to fight back.
In 2018, I left the comfortable confines of a steady, rewarding career to devote my energies to advocating for those in harm's way. 

The exact path I take is uncertain, but I am ready for a challenge that makes the best use of my skills as a journalist, advocate and compassionate human being. 

In early 2019, I volunteered with a San Diego organization that helps migrants on both sides of the U.S.-Mexico border. That experience affirmed my desire to continue that work.

I'm a professional journalist with more than 30 years of experience as a newspaper reporter, academic medical university writer, freelancer and blogger. Recent publication credits include the Washington Post and The Healing Muse journal of literary and visual arts. 

My strengths? Honesty, empathy and fairness. 
I'm open to all opportunities, and eager to travel.
