Some Things I Do:
I'm the director of NowPlayingNashville for the Community Foundation of
Middle Tennessee
, where I also support the Big Payback and Giving Matters initiatives, edit the NowPlayingNashville Stories Blog and write for the annual report and newsletter.

I was previously the director of media relations and online strategies for Nashville Public Television and media relations manager for the Nashville Film Festival.
  I'm a freelance writer and essayist. Some places to read things:

Contently: Select published essays, interviews, profiles and various other writings from Chapter 16, The Nashville Scene, Nashville Arts, PBS and other sites.

Two Wheels and the Truth: A blog about books, biking and living in Nashville. It's a very slow blog. I'm not sure when I last updated it. I'm thinking about getting rid of it.

Medium: I've published a story or two on Medium, including an accounting of the time I spent 40 Days taking photos of books in my collection for what I called the #InstagramBookProject.

I'm an ambassador for Walk Bike Nashville. If you care about walkability and bikability in Middle Tennessee, you should follow them and consider being a member.

I was the executive producer of the Under the Guise / NPT web video series You Ought To Know Nashville.

I made music for awhile, and played shows and released several independent records in the early to mid 2000s.
It can be sampled or purchased at or iTunes or listened to on Spotify and most other song streaming services.

I like bikes, books and Italian food.

For 10 years, I had a sandwich named after me at Savarino's Cucina in Nashville, which closed in early 2017. You can make it at home, though. Get a nice sub roll. Add prosciutto, fresh mozzarella, tomato and pesto. It's really good in the summer.
I once rocked eyeliner for a great cause.

I took that photo up there at Brion Cemetery in San Vito D'Altivole while cycling near Treviso, Italy.
