I am a musician, free-lance writer and high-school English teacher. A long-time traditional American music performer, I now write songs and perform with my partner Riely O'Connor. Also, I write articles - focusing on green living and healthy eating - for South Bend Tribune's IN Michiana Magazine. I drive a Prius. I shop at our long-standing Farmers Market and our nearly-new food co-op, The Purple Porch.
