I’m a mother (of Walt aged 5), a partner (of Jim for nearly 20 years), a friend, a daughter, a sister, a teacher, an activist, a PROUD union member, a writer (co-author of Under the Perfect Sun: The San Diego Tourists Never See with Jim Miller and Mike Davis; co-author of Better to Reign in Hell: Inside the Raiders Fan Empire with Jim Miller; articles and reviews in various places; an instructor’s resource manual to accompany Paula Rothenberg’s Race, Class and Gender in the United States), and managing editor of San Diego City Works Press. It’s a good life.
