I live in the Hilltowns of Western MA with the spouse and various dogs. I’m a medical social worker for hospice for many moons. I also worked in days of yore as an editor and industrial journalist, and also as a legal writer. Even farther back I was a court reporter in Jimmy Carter’s White House and covered the annual Senate and Congressional Budget Hearings, a job rife with dismay. The photos in Altered are my own. I have one fake knee. I speak Irish. I am an artist who loves fiber art, mixed media, assemblage. I love nature. I am wary of humans.
