Currently sifting mud for gold, saying no to shiny distractions, and building my own websites. I've spent the last 49 years exploring the world with Florida as my home base for 35 of those. I attend a number of live music events and can otherwise be found lurking in art studios, back alleys, and libraries. My creative work reflects my love of words in writing, photography, and multimedia found object art pieces.
