The Bowl

I work across the street from this grocery store, and shop there at least twice a week.

It kind of sums up my feelings about Berkeley in a nutshell:

It may be a "town of hall monitors" but the food oh! the food!

My Job, In Wildlife Metaphor

I am a momma bird who eats data. I chew it up, swirl it around, cut it 100 different ways, and puke it back up in a digestible form for my baby bird clients.

If I'm doing my job right, it comes up as a coherent story about a place, a time and a community.

If I'm doing my job right, it looks easy. It isn't.

Despite my unappetizing description, it's actually quite an interesting and enjoyable process.
