I’m a writer, editor, crafter, podcaster and speaker, and I make something – anything – every day. Through Mighty Ugly I help people and groups battle the demons that hold back their creativity so they can have (more) fun making stuff and doing big things. Indeed, I’ve written a book about this. I’m fascinated by creativity, crafts, publishing, and varied topics related to independent business and practice in these realms.
I help people start to do things they've never done before and have more fun making stuff. Kinda like a camp counselor for grown-ups. My latest book, Make It Mighty Ugly: Exercises And Advice For Getting Creative Even When It Ain't Pretty, is in bookstores and libraries everywhere. It's a handbook for vanquishing creative demons so you can go ahead and make stuff – art, craft, whatever! Here's a handy list of other things about me.
