I’m a freelancer who has worked part-time, full-time, on contract, and in organizations I founded, as an editor, writer, researcher, nonprofit executive, organizer, and artist.
You can reach me at <firstname.lastname@example.org>.
I’m intentionally a generalist, matchmaker, and creator of both short-lived and long-lasting enterprises, projects, conversations, and events. Some I’ve left or closed down on purpose. I work with words and ideas, and almost always in concert with others. I’m glad to be 70, and I enter my “eighth layer” with enthusiasm and purpose, wonderful friends, family, and two grandkids.
More about my work
I currently work with the Jini Dellaccio Project sponsored by Artist Trust and as Alum in Residence at the University of Washington’s School of Art + Art History + Design. Earlier, I was the first executive director of Grantmakers in the Arts (1999-2008) and co-editor of its journal, the GIA Reader (1991-2009). Examples of current and recent contract work include editing for Lucy Bernholz, editing/planning for the Community Democracy Workshop, and facilitating retreats for Copper Canyon Press and Soil, an artist collective. I’ve led or helped instigate the start-up of nonprofit, for-profit, and informal enterprises including Penny U, a conversation series about work with Town Hall Seattle (2014-present); the Community Democracy Workshop (2009-14); What’s Up?, an informal monthly conversation with artist Carolyn Law (2002-13); Arts Wire, a national online network for the arts (1990-95); Artist Trust, a nonprofit supporting Washington state artists (1986); Artech, a for-profit art-handling company (1978), and and/or, an artists’ organization (1974-84). The Anne Focke Gallery in Seattle’s City Hall acknowledges my contributions to the city, where I’ve lived for over 40 years.
