Here’s a little bit about me, Mitchell, Dana and Beverly:

Kathy Dalle-Molle’s mission is to lead with words … by writing, speaking and guiding others to achieve their dreams through writing. She teaches students of all ages and levels of writing experience in public, private, academic and corporate settings. She is building a community of writers who believe in using the power of words to make a difference. Over the last 25 years, Kathy’s journalism, essays and short fiction have appeared in numerous print and digital publications. As an editor, writer and researcher, she has collaborated on more than 75 non-fiction books, including several bestsellers. Recently, she served as the research director and chief editor of renowned photojournalist Rick Smolan’s globally crowdsourced multimedia project, The Human Face of Big Data. Kathy loves new ideas, new challenges and meeting new people.

Mitchell Friedman has been a Noe Valley resident for 25 years, having moved to the Bay Area from New York to pursue graduate studies in history at Stanford University. He currently serves as Associate Dean, Student/Alumni Affairs and Career Development at Presidio Graduate School, and has taught extensively at numerous local universities. Mitchell earned a Doctorate in Education focusing on Organization and Leadership from the University of San Francisco, an M.A. in Modern European History from Stanford University and a B.A. in History from Brandeis University. He also is accredited in Public Relations.

Beverly Tharp grew up in Honolulu, Hawaii, when it was still a territory.  During her mid- to late-teenage years she lived in Paris.  After college, she retreated to Kona, where for nine years she sold bikinis from all over the world.  Each day, gazing out the store window at the turquoise ocean, she dreamed of escape. Finally one day she flew to San Francisco to study painting and poetry. She married a musician and learned photography. At last she was saved.

Dana Vinicoff came to San Francisco in 1974 to go to law school, and never left. She has retired after 31 years as a legal writer, editor and publication manager. In between acting gigs and community organizing, she writes creative non-fiction with any group she can find, maintains her blog and tries to massage her writings into one or more collections that some people might enjoy reading.

I hope to see you on April 13!

Onward and upward,
