Professionally, I provide services with Social Media and Virtual Outreach. I host a radio talk show, and work as an artist, writer, editor, blogger, photographer, environmentalist and musician. I grew up in my father’s radio station, one of the first to feature a rock and roll format in the USA. I am a veteran of the US Air Force and worked as an Intelligence Ops Specialist in the US and Europe. I studied English, Film, Political Science and Journalism in school. From 2006 until 2012 I was on staff for Presidential and Congressional campaigns. From 2010 to 2014, I was elected and served on the Hillsborough County (Tampa Metro) Soil and Water Conservation Board. I won the seat with over 82,000 votes and spending less than $300 for my campaign. I have co-founded and organized local chapters of Veterans for Peace, Code Pink, Move to Amend and Indymedia.
I am a long time grassroots organizer for the GREEN PARTY. I have served in various capacities; as co-chair for the Florida Green Party, building local party organizations and as a delegate for the state of Florida and to the Green National Committee. I produced for broadcast the WISE WOMEN MEDIA RADIO SHOW and CHALLENGING THE RHETORIC, a forum for female journalists. I have worked with various organizations to ensure human rights and social justice for all, a green environment, clean water and safe non-GMO food and ingredient labeling. I have worked locally and statewide on campaigns to halt pipelines, oil drilling, fracking and mining. I continue to support Human Rights & Social Justice causes and the legalization of marijuana. I support women and girls for a variety of organizations and secure permissions for the use of copyright music for podcasts produced by environmental organizations.
