What I'm Not Looking For

Unfortunately, my schedule is packed. I'd love to help out, but there are certain things I will refuse and ask that you refrain from contacting me for, including:

  • Free advice or pro bono work.*
  • Speculative or contingency work of any kind.
  • Writing for your publication or blog.
  • Partnership or joint-venture opportunities.
  • Full-time assistance with anything.

*I might accept some limited commitments working with certain charitable and non-profit organizations in areas that are meaningful to me, such as cancer, mental health, women's issues, LGBTQ+ issues, and education.

What Inspires Me Lately

  • I'm learning more about my ADHD — recently diagnosed at 52 — and how it affects me, how I've managed to cope, and how I can improve.
  • I'm a history buff, and I'm deeply fascinated by linguistics and linguistic anthropology; I love learning how language can/has shaped civilizations, cultures, mores, customs, and social constructs.
  • I'm addicted to maple syrup and caramel.
  • I'm a coffee lover, and recently I've discovered cold brew; speaking of my sweet tooth, I'm in love with Starbuck's Salted Caramel Cold Brew coffee.
  • I'm a semi-professional drummer and musician, but these days I play mostly from home as my two bands (country and hard rock) are currently on hiatus due to COVID social distancing rules.
