My business cards have said things like writer, editor, publisher, public communication specialist. I’ve also been a team leader, non-profit fundraiser, and social media strategist. I’ve covered everything from SEC sports, a U.S. Women’s Open in golf, fishermen grabbing catfish with their hands, to an Eagles concert.

These days I’m enjoying life in Western North Carolina and golf. This site aims to tell the stories of those playing golf in WNC and provide information on how to enjoy the game in the region. Thanks for joining us!
