I'm a professional communicator: working across disciplines and industries, I exhume stories and examine them in an engaging and entertaining manner.
Ethics of image-making
The Storyville Portraits
Cultural histories of vice
Gothic horror, regional horror... horror
Developmental editing (fiction, non-fiction, dramaturgy, you name it)
Coaching and counseling
What kind of projects do you do?
I write, I edit, I consult, I research, I teach. Essentially, I create or help create.
How have you trained?
I'm academically and vocationally trained. Please ask for a CV or resume if you'd like.
What's your philosophy?
Not exhaustive, but: I believe in listening, learning, and being kind.
You have a newsletter? Why?
Why not? It's here.
Did you know the image on your book's cover isn't a Bellocq?
I do! I'm not allowed to reproduce any of the Portraits that are still under copyright (which is all of the canonical ones).
