Thank you for visiting my website. I've been a journalist in Maine for more than three decades, including 10 years as senior editor of Down East and Maine Homes magazines. I've covered such diverse topics as the child-welfare practices that have devastated Maine's Wabanaki people, a remote island's struggle to maintain a year-round community, the revival of Maine's oyster industry, a United Nations proposal to promote moose milk (yes, really!), and a rare moth that lives only on atop Maine's highest mountain. I've driven the entire 527-mile length of Maine's Route 1, observed the peculiar rituals of one island's daily commute, and helped biologists capture and assess the health of loons on a lake in the middle of the night. My magazine articles have won eight International Regional Magazine Association awards, including four golds. I copyedit and proofread Voyages, the annual journal of the Cruising Club of America, and I've copyedited books for other authors. Current projects include a book about the Maine mountain hamlet of Carrabassett Valley, written with the town's history committee.
