Seattle is my hometown, but my husband Doug and I love to travel. We're currently (spring and summer of 2013) on a six-month sabbatical, with plans to spend time in Dublin, Berlin, Croatia, Iceland, and more. I'm a writer and editor by trade; I've also spent nearly a decade in nonprofit arts administration and fundraising. I love to garden and to bake (one sad thing about traveling is leaving my sourdough starter at home!); I'm also big into crocheting and knitting, biking, reading, amateur web development, and cheese toast.
