I’m a resident of Oakland CA and first moved here in 1988. After beating lymphoma in 2015 I elected to shift away from traditional employment toward freelancing, focusing on domestic help (housesitting, pet care, running errands) and computer work (web design and low-level user support). Right now is a very exciting time to be self-employed.
My favorite down-time activities are taking pictures of the beauty that is Oakland, road-tripping with my longtime companion Sadie The Traveling Cat, and working on my novel. I also keep two blogs, one solely about my experience with cancer and the other about the rest of my life.
