Home base: Sonoma County, California

Some recent favorite reads: I’ll Give You the Sun by Jandy Nelson, We Were Liars by E. Lockhart, The Interestings by Meg Wolitzer, Vampires in the Lemon Grove by Karen Russell (see my Goodreads).

The classics in my book: Harry Potter series, His Dark Materials, The Dark is Rising series, The Secret Garden.

Favorite writing tip:  “A clean house is a sign of a wasted life.” 

My day job: Strategy and marketing consulting. I especially love writing business plans (probably because it’s all about storytelling). I produce and curate TEDxSonomaCounty (also storytelling). See Mac Barnett’s fantastic talk on how kids know way more than adults about reading.
