My dog Winston and I.

Kathleen Murray Bio


I have always been a communicator.  Born a twin, I was most likely communicating well before birth. As a member of a large family, I grew up around a cast of characters and became intrigued with learning about what makes us all do the wacky things we do. A career in business and marketing taught me the power of prose in allowing me to focus in on a singular product and marketing definition or in the development of a complex promotional concept. I grew up in Chicago's North Shore and currently call Arizona home. Today I continue as an avid pupil of people, their stories, and the various ways they express themselves.
