The unworthy owner of a 1952 Gibson guitar, I'm interested in music, hiking and all things Southern. Volunteer activities have included Literacy Volunteers, theater renovation, teaching at the Roanoke Times' Regional Minority Journalism Workshop and assisting at The Christmas Store, a project that provides food and gifts for families living below the poverty line. I also spent a year leading a creative writing program for teens at the Salem, Va. YMCA.
