About the Writer


“When life kicks you in the butt, use it as energy for forward motion”, Tom Myrick.

I graduated from the Media Production Technology Curriculum at Tidewater Community College in 1988. Working as a professional TV News Photojournalist/Media Production Specialist for most of my adult life, I became proficient in many aspects of multimedia production. After completing the Master Gardener program in 2006, I started attending horticulture classes at a local community college.

Writing, photography, and gardening are passions of mine. Having a diversified set of work skills and a lifetime of experience, I currently write for several online vegetable gardening publications and own a landscaping business.

My mission is to encourage unity and peace among all people throughout the world through vegetable gardening.

Play in the dirt,
