Hi. How are you?

I am a published author/editor of travel pieces and creative non-fiction; shortlisted in satire and also write a lot of ad/website copy. Now that copy mostly revolves around writing legal copy. My other steady copy client is a small marketing firm in L.A. that focuses on health and beauty. I am also writing a play; my background is in acting and singing so now I want to create for performers. I went to a theater conservatory and have done theater in Chicago, Miami, Bermuda, NYC. Have also done two commercials and voiceover work.

Lived in Manhattan for ten years, but left to build my writing business in Tennessee, where I was born and grew up. Also, I found myself tiring of the constant rent scramble in NYC plus starting a freelance career I can take anywhere is easier to do from here. My plan is to use Chattanooga as my base for now, and continue to travel (I visit London more than the average American as I have many friends there.) Right now, I want to move to Nashville so it can be my base. It seems vibrant... arts/music focused, and connected.

Other things: I love hula hoop dance, sprinting/workout bootcamps, my pets, wine and beer (of course!) love trying different foods, whether junk food or gourmet. Not bothered by cigars/smoke. Enjoy museums and art exhibits though I can't even draw a straight line. A few years ago, I saw a tour of da Vinici's notebooks that astounded.

Favorite cities: London, Paris, Venice, Savannah, New Orleans. Hope to visit Buenos Aires soon. Planning my first trip to Spain for summer 2014.

I am very clean--- will leave your place the way I found it, maybe even shinier. Very dependable. Feel free to find me via the usual internet ways so you can look at my profile. References available.
