Professional Background:

My writing in the past 16 years has been in the tightly critical realm of academia as a university professor. I have been successful, with over 30 publications.

However, I find academic writing to be limited and formulaic. I am looking forward to being self-employed, able to be more creative and inventive as I was when working at CNN/Turner Learning. There I developed writing to coordinate with CNN TV documentaries, movie series, and more.

I love to travel and have visited over 40 countries, also living in Ireland, New Zealand, and Japan. I take beautiful photographs. I am beginning to write a website about my style of travel at

I have another website - - where I share my love of dance with newcomers.

If your business deals with creativity, travel, social justice projects, or personal growth, please contact me to help you develop your important work.
