More about me:

I blog a bit at DowntownDame.com. I started writing in 2010 about what was going on in downtown Raleigh, where I live. It's evolved quite a bit since then, and I finally wrote a new post after some time off.

I love being outside and getting my hands dirty. I'm into creating stuff with herbs and gardening my little plot inside the beltline.

In my 20s when I was in between jobs, I worked outside all day for a year delivering, planting, and pruning trees for the City of Raleigh.

Other past job fun facts:

My first job out of college was with the successful PR firm, blast! PR.

I lived in Brooklyn and worked at Bellevue Hospital in Manhattan for a year.

Other things I've made:

My sister and I used to make and sell handmade greeting cards.

I was a technical editor for the book "The foundation for an open source city" by Jason Hibbets (2013)

I was an Assistant Director for the short film "Trust" by Paul Sapp (2012)
