About Me


I take responsibility as a narrative nonfiction writer to merge truthful content with formats that hold the readers’ interest.

My English degree led me to marketing and raising funds for 25 years. 

I pursued, in 2000, a Masters in Fine Arts degree, with a focus on Social Art. That  practice is collaborative, often participatory and involves people as the medium or material of the work. Words and images played a significant role in its documentation.

In 2007, I co-founded Yonn Ede Lot, a community-based nonprofit organization in Haiti. Our partnership with rural agricultural Haitian associations encouraged leadership and economic growth and became the subject of my book, “Give & Take: Doing Our Damnedest NOT to be Another Charity in Haiti,” published 2015.

I continue to write about people and their communities, here and abroad, using reported or personal essays as the primary form.
