I’m a writer, a reader, and a believer in lifelong learning. Growing up, I spent my summers checking out stacks of books from the public library, which led to a love of words and storytelling.

Currently, I work as a copywriter producing content including website landing pages, email, technical guides, blog posts, ads, e-books, and social media. I’ve also worked as a staff writer for an environmental publication, writing news and feature articles on topics like recycling, gardening, and sustainable living, and as a teacher of English Composition, Creative Writing, and English as a Second Language. I also write creative nonfiction and fiction. I received an MFA in Creative Writing and Environment from Iowa State University.

I’m passionate about environmental sustainability, education, and language. I grew up in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, but have also lived in Iowa and Arizona and spent a few months each in Spain, New York City, and Mexico. I now live in Portland, Oregon.
