I'm a writer. A photographer.
For 15 years I was an International and Urban teacher
in NYC, Boston, Philadelphia, Cairo, Istanbul, Costa Rica and Mexico
and have a Master's Degree in Educational Leadership
and a Principal Certificate from NJ.
I wrote four books in the past seven years
and know that I can write 1,500 words a day.
I can edit also edit 1,500 words in a work day.
(just not in the same day :)
I'm fluent in Spanish and mostly don't remember Arabic and Turkish;
But I'll never forget either culture
(And could re learn both in about 6 weeks.)
I just finished a project that I was working on for the past year:
Profiles from Puerto Escondido, Mexico.
Puerto has one of the top 10 heaviest waves in the world.
I have roughly 125 Profiles written
and worked specifically with the Junior Lifeguards,
the Lifeguards and the Pioneers of Surf of Puerto
(the old folk).
I swim and bodysurf in big waves and take water photography.
I'm 48 and roughly same weight I was in high school
except now my resting heart rate dips into the 30's.
In the past 3 months I've had 8 articles published.
I live in Puerto Escondido, Mexico.
