HobbiesI've spent a decade as an arts writer in Baltimore, and know and love the art, theater, and film scenes here. For over three years, I co-founded and managed New Mercury Readings, a popular nonfiction reading series, which brings local and nationally know writers here to read. I'm a musician, as well, a sailor, and a sports fanatic. And I've always loved teaching people to write.
