Agile Editing & Photography



I have placed several examples of my photographs online. These are necessarily small and low-res to fit on the Web. If you would like a higher-resolution picture or a print, please contact me at .

For the bigger picture, check out my rotating pictures page, or have a look at some shots from Marshall Mesa.

My Writing

When I was teaching at Front Range Community College, I developed a few essays as examples for my students. Here's a PDF of an article I wrote about my grandmother and her Trek with Tenzing Norgay in Bhutan back in 1975.

I'm on facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn — and if that's not enough, I just started a blog: Dragonfly Wars. Have a look, and feel free to comment!

February GSA Today cover
The Feb. 2008 GSA Today is one of GSA's most-read issues.


I've been managing editor of GSA Today, the Geological Society of America's member news and science magazine, since 2005. Along with that, I am managing editor of our e-news magazine, GSA Connection, as well as backup to our Webmaster and lead social media semi-expert. We are on facebook and Twitter). It's a great time of growing and stretching my skills.

Bear and I got married in Vancouver, British Columbia, on 25 June 2010. A few days in Vancouver were followed by a cruise on board the MS Statendam up the Inside Passage to Alaska.

Buddy, a 10-yr-old golden retriever, who was with me since he was a puppy, died on 11 June 2010. He used to work as a therapy dog at Boulder Community Hospital here in Boulder. Buddy was my best friend. Read more about him in my blog post: "Memorial to Buddy, a Good Dog."

A week after Bear's chow-chow mix died (26 May 2009; he was 16), we adopted Blue Aroo, a now-12-yr-old husky mix, from the MaxFund shelter in Denver. He's a great dog and a great addition to the household. Read more about Blue on my blog post "Who is Blue Aroo?"
