I'm a writer, longleaf pine needle artist and yoga intructor.

My current writing project is a memoir about my father, George Tames, chief photographer for the Washington Bureau of The New York Times for more than 40 years. He photographed presidents from Franklin Roosevelt to George H. W. Bush. Many of his images have become iconic– are part of our collective memory of a certain time or place in American history. The essays in the memoir explore my father’s personal and professional lives and the impact of his photography on our family.
