Hello! I am a lifelong writer, editor, publisher, and resident of the Pacific Northwest. Raised Baptist but slowly migrated toward Zen, Buddhism, pantheism, humanism, and, finally, atheism. During a 2-year stint in Los Angeles, I was active with CFI-West, volunteering and attending various events and lectures. Then, after a move to Seattle, I decided it was time to be more "out" about my beliefs. Last May, I started a Meetup Group called "Heathens Do It Better" - which now has almost 90 members. I'm also involved with Seattle Atheists and hope to work toward creating a speakers' bureau for the group. Love Basenjis and racquetball.
