The Creative Compass:

In Brief
I write all the time, for readers and clients, and because I love it. Im based in DC, because I love it. Im fascinated by culture, including science, math, and technology. Ive lived abroad and now the world feels smaller. I like reading and listening in more than one language, and its changed the way I collaborate. I believe that all the best projects are inherently collaborative. I rarely run out of ideas, but its also enough just to help. Im looking to connect with people dedicated to truth-seeking, storytelling, and asking good questions.
