Hi! Not all of my work is here, but most of my online work is. Articles I've written that appear only in print need to be scanned & converted to PDFs and then uploaded separately—a task not yet done.
Interview with the talented artist Christie Tirado, based in Yakima, WA. She uses different mediums and a lot of her work relates to the experience of Mexican-Americans. I met Christie 12 years ago when we worked together at a jewelry store in downtown Seattle and I'm glad we have kept in touch a little over the years and that I have had the opportunity to see her ascend as an artist and educator.
My review of the book Telephone, by Brenda Miller & Julie Marie Wade
Interview with talented musician and composer Friedrich Heinrich Kern. The interview was condensed for online publication but the full interview was about twelve questions, which Kern responded to in engaging and fascinating ways. I wish all of the material could have been published.
Article about Planet Worth, an incredible organization that cooks and serves organic vegan meals to unhoused communities in Seattle. They also deliver other much-needed supplies to those in need.
Article about/interview with director Leslie Bloom of the film "Woodstock or Bust" and the parallels the film has with her real-life best friend of over 50 years.
Article about both of the women's football teams in Seattle.
Wrote about artist and author Carrie Schmitt: her new book, her spiritual approach to painting, and why she self-identifies as a "color activist."
I get to talk to a lot of interesting people thanks to freelancing but she is definitely one of the most fascinating.
Story about Trail Youth Coffee Home, a wonderful establishment that supports teens in North Bend, WA.
I also took many of the photographs for this story. The gallery can be found here: https://seattlerefined.com/eat-drink/gallery/trail-youth#photo-1
Part review, part interview about Hsiao-Ching Chou's new vegetarian cookbook.
