All My Hats

Learning by doing is the way I work and it's served me well.

Over the past several years, I've had the pleasure of writing for the San Francisco Chronicle Contra Costa Times, Dance Magazine, Diablo Magazine, Diablo Arts, KALW, KQED, In Dance, and Ballet Dance Magazine. Browse the links to the left to see some of my work.
