I am passionate about entrepreneurship and have been self-employed for nearly 20 years. Several projects have been with my partner, Jeff Jarvis, who is an amazing software engineer. In addition to editing and publishing Eighty Percent Raw, I am also responsible for administration of Code Hat Labs, our software development company, and Hot Chops Music , our indie record label and music promotion business. Additionally, I’m a professional relationship & career counselor to clients all over the world with my spiritual coaching business, PDX Tarot. I’m also a professional Pyrographer and handcrafted Jewelry Designer.
I am a published author – Lady, Get A Life!: The Definitive How-To-Get-Out Manual For Women Stuck In A Lousy Relationship , and have engaged in considerable political activism for Drug Law Reform, for which Jeff and I were interviewed on more than 25 talk radio, national and local television stations, and were written about in several newspaper and magazine articles. We have spoken from stage to audiences of 10 to 10,000+. We also conducted interviews and produced our own PSA radio ads. Learn about all of that HERE.
I enjoy reading, writing, social networking, online gaming , family time, dining out & live music with my sweetheart, family and friends, movies, wine tasting, international travel, etc.
