Politics and Culture. A Tonic.

Who am I?

I'm general counsel for a medium-sized tax-exempt organization that helps court-involved and other at-risk populations clear barriers to success in the community.

I'm also a development/fundraising professional and provide legal advice and guidance to start-up entertainment firms.

I blog at Between the Stations and occasionally contribute to Funnybook Babylon. My ever-expanding bookshelf is here. I infrequently write about food and take pictures.

I'm also the happiest new dad in the world.

That's everything.

Vintage Black Burlesque: Rare images of bold and beautiful burlesque dancers from the past on

Very cool. If you’re like me, your attention was immediately drawn to Lottie “The Body” Graves, the legendary burlesque dancer known as Detroit’s answer to Gypsy Rose Lee. During her career, Ms. Graves co-starred with artists ranging from T-Bone Walker, B.B. King and Billie Holiday to Maurice Taylor and Solomon Burke. Sarah Klein wrote an entertaining profile of Ms. Graves for the Metro Times a couple of years ago - check it out here.
