Social entrepreneur. No matter what I do, I hope to use it as a vehicle for transforming some section of our amazing world.
General visionary and life force for a variety of organizations, entities, projects, causes, and individuals. I have a way of seeing a way of making things happen, making things better, etc. yet I am not gifted in actually making tangible things, unless you count the word content of books, articles and scripts. If there was a job of thinking up stuff and making things happen, it would be the one for me.
As it is, except for being a writer, I'm 42 now, and I don't know what I want to be when I grow up.
I'm a playwright, journalist/essayist, blogger and apparently a visionary. For work, I collaborate on and edit books, write grant proposals and business plans, and other fabulous documents as needed.
My short story, "Namesake" was named a winner in the Lorian Hemingway Short Story Competition in 2010. I am working on a short story collection and do one-on-one editing, coaching and jump starting for fiction and memoir writers.
My stageplay, "Brigid Kilidare's Steelworks" was a finalist in the Writer's Digest Writing Competition. I am readying it for workshop and production. For more about my plays, LIKE Ash Sanborn here on Facebook. http://www.facebook.com/ashsanborn/
I volunteer backstage for local theatre productions and am happy to live in the artistic environs of the Spencer/Okoboji area. I'm interested in sustainable living, including organic gardening, reuse and repurposing, and living simply.
