About Me: A Not So Brief Introduction


I’ve owned three businesses and will always carry a torch for the entrepreneurial experience.

I refuse to believe that print is a dying medium, and I plan to do whatever is necessary to keep the fire burning in my little universe.

I find the writing process to be exceedingly painful. (Fist bump if you agree.)

I am quality-driven.

I’m old school.

I love lists.

I believe that precise, effective communication is critical to personal and professional success.

Writing is rewriting.

We are living in the age of the amateur. Do not succumb to the temptations therein.

“Kill your darlings.” -William Faulkner

All day long.

    I LOVE IT!! RIP Betty Page.. Was saddened a few days ago when I learned of her heart attack..Knew it wouldn’t be long. She’s flying with the angels and looking as hot as she did in her day =)

    Anyways, I haven’t even looked through 1/2 of your page, so I’ll get back to that. Love your seemingly lifetime sense of humor and originality. I aspire to have those qualities as my life goes on!

  9. Michel,

    I received your information from someone at Ventura College. I recently took over as Director of the Opera/Musical program there, and I believe you’re collecting info for upcoming shows in the arts. Could I send you our show that we’ll be putting on in December?
