Real Recovery Series

While working as a Creative Director, I was asked to create an ad campaign based on the intimate stories of addicts, recovering addicts, and their families. I wrote and designed these pieces, each based on hours of in-person interviews, capturing each person's story in just 100 words. Click image to view/download PDF.

Personal blog

This is the way you'll get to know me best. Click below to read selected posts.

 

Company on the Trail: I may (or may not) have met an alligator. Let's just say I did.

Among the Missing: Because the world stops when you lose your wallet.

Oundo: Still my favorite post – and possibly my favorite word – of all time.

Aid and Comfort (Part I, Part II, Part III): I was widowed at 39. This series looks at what helped and what didn't.

My Coach's Kid: Ironically, I DID eventually become my son's first soccer coach; he's now an elite player.

The Book That Changed Me: I'm a reader, and I can name a lot of books that moved me. But none like this one.

Up on the Roof: What else are you going to do when your neighbors pop ceramic lions on top of their house?

Promises, Promises: When you brag that you can write virtually anything, you'd better come through.

Gateway Journalism Review
