I’m Terra Walker: author, artist, autodidact, and reformed coffee addict.
I’m based in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida (for now), but planning to pack it up and mosey back to Denver, Colorado before the middle of Hurricane Season 2018. In addition to blogging here, in the supersaturated Food Blogger sponge at A Spork in the Road (where I’m also a Culinary Coach), and teaching bloggers how to blog at BloggyPedia, I’m the VP of Content – Division of Letters and Numbers – at Flying Circus Media Group. I know it sounds like I have my plate full, but when I’m busy being creative, my plate can’t get full enough.
I’ve spent considerable time ghost and technical writing, so odds are you’ve seen my things floating around the World Wide Web or after you’ve refused to read the instructions fifty times and then finally pick them up. I even have a Medium blog where I write almost never, because who has that kind of time? Who am I kidding? I forget it’s there.
I was once featured on CBS Local.
Before I did all this, I did a lot (25+ years) of that: Marketing, Public Relations, and Event Design. I’ve spent the entirety of my adult years with at least one toe in the marketing world, while holding up the PR Genny1 for big oil; big telecom; small, medium & large music; small & medium Hollywood; education; and various non-profits. I’ve studied biology, astronomy, congenital heart disease, and teaching, in-depth.
- I’m an early adopter to all things tech and social media related.
- I prefer to be a digital nomad.
- I am a Congenital Heart Disease Survivor (dTGA if you’re Googling it).
- I love connecting people to each other, especially over food.
- Yoga, swimming, and grocery shopping ground me.
- Creating and observing pretty things (the arts, the sciences, cooking, gardening, travel, stories, astronomy, relationships) makes my soul come alive.
