es|brath is my perpetually un-updated website. Ironically, my day job is graphic designer and editor, and I spend a considerable portion of my time working on other peoples’ websites.
Fortunately, my other—occasional—day job is vegan cook/chef/baker. Meaning, I spend a considerable portion of my time thinking about and/or making food. I was halfway through a culinary degree when the pandemic hit, which I fully intend to continue after the ’Rona goes the hell away.
I’m also an occasional working artist, mural artist, and author. I also try to keep up with my blog. Try being the operative word…
I earned my BFA from the San Francisco Art Institute, masters in journalism from Syracuse. I’ve lived everywhere from SF to Philly to Boston to London, and countless places in between. I am currently based in beautiful Ithaca, New York, which is great in a pandemic with its many hiking trails, lakes, gorges, and ridiculous natural beauty. I’ve been here for more years than I’ve been anywhere else. I’m also human to a rapidly-growing German Shepherd-who-knows-what-else mix named Eisa.

It is a long time since I have heard from you, and I am very sorry about that.
I do hope you would write me a few words and tell me how you are doing. Please write me a few words, lots of love from your aunt in Norway.
I can’t wait to read A Permanent Vacation to Nowhere. Just read your latest essay on Full Grown People. I could relate so much. Similar experience with my ex. Fantastic writing!
ditto heidi’s comment above, and i finally commented here because i grew up between siberacuse and ithaca, and always love hearing people write fondly about the place of my birth.
