About Me

I was a robotics engineer for fifteen years before becoming a freelance writer and editor. In 2017 I experienced my first manic episode at age 40. I was hospitalized and diagnosed with bipolar 1 mood disorder. Over the following three years I wrote a memoir about my experiences with my family, the mental health care system, and society at large.
