Tell us a little about your writing career.

I was a longtime aviation, destination and travel journalist and public relations executive and now have transitioned my literary career into grant writing -- but I still enjoy freelance writing on many levels.

Who are your literary influences?

My influences have really so far been simply my colleagues in aviation, travel and destination writing, as well as my colleagues I'm getting to know through professional groups such as the Grant Professionals Association.

What do you hope to gain from our monthly workshop?

I hope to gain new skills on how to develop a more diverse writing capability, perhaps to plan out my first book.


Hi! I'm a 53-year-old partnered gay professional grant writer seeking to stretch myself from a skill set point of view -- perhaps explore creative writing of some kind, or acquire a skill that will help me develop a small business on the side.
