I've always been telling stories.
To the girl next door, then to readers of the high school paper and the literary journal. To anyone who would listen at UCLA. Major: history and demonstrations. I wrote newsletters, hung posters and flirted with movie making. To audiences as an Army PSYOP officer - an Army story teller. Parlayed this into a blur of political, PIO, speech writer, and marketing jobs, a wife, and a daughter. To users as a computer programmer, a kind of story teller, too.
Those computer years are over and I'm focused on telling stories again. I attend film festivals, write reviews and am working on screenplays. Still telling stories.
