Born in Kansas, I've moved around a bit and I love to travel. I enjoy adventures and kind folks; the South mostly occupies my heart and I make it back there several times a year. My hobbies center around music, gardening, cooking and photography. Every year my garden gets a little bigger and more ambitious - heirloom tomatoes are a focus of mine. Music that I love is bluegrass, old country and roots reggae...I used to be a music host for some NPR affiliates and now work in higher education remotely. I take my office with me on the road!
