Thanks for stopping by!
My training as an anthropologist and writing coach shapes how I see the world, how I write about it, and I how I encourage others to write about it.
I trained as an anthropologist and writer with a few goals:
1. Earn a doctorate in a field that explores the range of expression of what it means to be human.
2. Learn how people’s stories, symbols and ideas fit into the wider picture of culture. I sought to understand the connections between the personal and the social.
3. Develop a form of writing and expression that uses the everyday details of people’s lives to illustrate the bigger, often interconnected ways that we inhabit our world(s).
4. Learn how to engage in issues of Public Interest as an anthropologist. That means engaging in relevant topics and trying to weigh in as clearly and accessibly as possible.
I commit my own writing and how I guide others to write along these principles.
My story tells a bigger story. Your story tells a bigger story. Our stories tell bigger stories.
Let’s tell our stories!
