Bio

I am a retired Urban Planner, with a Master's Degree from UCLA, who worked 30 years for the City of New York and the City of Santa Barbara.  My job responsibilities frequently involved extensive writing.

 

In retirement, I have found the practice of writing to have therapeutic value and to contribute to constructive community building. 

I use restored, vintage typewriters to encourage people to write and have found the tactile/sonic quality and immediacy of the typewriter to facilitate expressions of emotion, sentiment and spontaneous creativity.
