Storyteller. Travel junky. Provocateur.

Hi, I'm Serena. By day, I'm a river-obsessed superhero working for an environmental nonprofit in our nation's capital. My background is in communications/marketing, policy and project management, but being a storyteller/writer is the backbone of it all. When the lights go down and I hang up my cloak, I'm just a girl who is passionate about books, art, travel and the human condition.

I've been blogging here since 2004 and currently write mostly about books, travel and my superhero origin story. Sometimes I get riled up and can be found doing a bit of political ranting. As Gloria Steinem once said...

"The truth will set you free. But first, it will piss you off."

Thanks for visiting!
