A lifelong writer of one sort or another, I took a 10-year detour into the yoga world to serve as a teacher, studio manager, and traveling yoga assistant before reclaiming my love of words and launching my freelance writing business, Outside Eye Consulting. I spend my days ghostwriting for clients, and my off time writing for myself and for the creative project I co-founded in 2010, Recovering Yogi, a web site for the spiritually disenfranchised.
In my blog, Cirque du Malaise, I write about my relationship to spirituality and self-care in a voice that is sometimes accused of being irreverent or downright snotty. I cherish humor and creativity above all other vices, and believe that reading and writing are some of the best (and only) things to live for. My favorite writers include Jonathan Saffron Foer, Salman Rushdie and Yann Martel. Visit my website for a list of novels I would defend with my firstborn, had I one.
I live in Marin, where, besides writing in solitude, I love to hike, do pottery, and frequent the local farmers markets. I always answer emails promptly, but never answer the phone.
