After working for 17 years in social services, I completed a training program in Expressive Arts at Tamalpa Institute and opened a business teaching aerial arts. I love creative expression in all forms and weave my love of creative movement, writing and music into the work I do. I recently completed Laurie Wagner's Wild Writing Teacher Training. This training inspired me to begin Rogue Writing and share the power of spontaneous writing circles with interested folks like you! Need more info?

I like to give people ways to freely and honestly express their true selves.
My ideal self is going to buy glass straws for everyone and make little fabric cases for them out
of the children’s too-small clothing.
I have a red sequined dress with spaghetti straps that I’ve never worn.
I’m experimenting with being frivolous.
I teach aerial arts because 1. I hate sitting in chairs 2. I love a task where my toes have a purpose. 3. I love falling and being caught.
I’m not a good housecleaner or dishwasher but I am a good cook.
Telling you what I love feels like revealing a dangerous secret.
I have freckles, children, two dogs and I love to dance.
One of those is a lie.
I like the papery shapes of wilted daffodils, the brown tinged edges curling in like antique lace.
My parents were farmers but I can’t get mint, basil or cilantro to grow in my garden.
I like to see the shadow of whales just below the surface.
The first story I ever wrote was called “Danny Gets A Broken Leg”. I was the hero.
