About Me

My passion for the written word was incubated in the beautiful mountain country of Jackson Hole--from a young age, I read omnivorously and wrote prodigiously, firm in my conviction that the writing life was for me. After that, I made my home in Seattle for a number of years, where I obtained a Master's of Fine Arts in Creative Writing and involved myself  fully in the local literary community through teaching and collaboration. However, the magnetic pull of the mountains drew me back in, and I now work for clients in both Seattle, WA and Jackson Hole, WY. 

Currently, I work as an author, editor, project manager, and content writer for a variety of publications in print and on the web, including magazines that focus on architecture, art, and design.  Whether it's finding the perfect voice for a fictional character, business, design project, or assisting a client in locating his/her own writing style, I am constantly energized by new topics and opportunities to learn. I bring rigorous attention-to-detail, professionalism, and boatloads of creative energy to each and every project.

Please look around, and contact me with any questions!
