Currently self-employed as a writer, I hold degrees in History and Library Science. I put these skills to work on cocktail history and taxonomy in The Art of the Shim: Low-Alcohol Cocktails to Keep You Level and on the Bibulo.us blog. My first book, Discardia: More Life, Less Stuff, explored letting go of what doesn’t make life awesome. See also dinahsanders.com
Interests: Sharing information and liking things.

Advertising, of course, is another source of "things you should add to your to-do list". Drive your list yourself (and for yourself) based on your own current dreams, goals, projects, and tastes.
