Up From The Ashes

A little over a year ago I decided to stop drifting thought life and to instead create the life I wanted for myself. I also chose to chronicle this process in a blog I titled Up From The Ashes. One of my early goals starting out was to stick to a regular posting schedule. Monday through Friday I post items on the subject of personal development and share my plans and successes.

The Oak Leaf

I started this year as a staff writer for the Oak Leaf, the award winning newspaper of Santa Rosa Junior College, and moved quickly to the position of Opinion Editor. At the Oak Leaf I have written news, features and reviews as well as a regular column focusing on students and technology.

I also write for We the People. Formerly a print newspaper We The People recently moved online to As a web site it continues to deliver local as well as national Gay and Lesbian news to the greater Sonoma County area.
