About

I’m a creative professional. That means that I make a living by creating something extraordinary out of the ordinary. Some do it with a paintbrush and canvas. Some do it with a guitar and microphone. I do it with my trusty pen and paper. In short, I’m a writer and editor. I prefer to work with amazing artists, inspiring entrepreneurs and humbling charities to craft language that helps their projects shine. Using a BA in English Literature and 15 years of experience in the publishing and marketing industries, I specialize in helping those seeking a path that will enrich their lives (artists, entrepreneurs) or their community (nonprofits, charities) by raising their voice through creative writing and conscientious editing.

Groceries, Games and Giving , 2016

One of my favorite clients is the Los Angeles Firemen’s Relief Association. Not only do I get to talk to kind and generous volunteers who share their time and energy with the charity, but I also get to meet some amazing firefighters who are no stranger to giving all of themselves on and off the job. One such person is the subject of this article I wrote for LAFRA.

Not Speaking of Spoken Word , 2016

I pitched this article to the then-new Sky Blue Window. SBW was an online magazine dedicated to covering the arts & culture scene in Central Indiana. The publication received content from a variety of sources, but my article was an exclusive highlighting why Indy’s underground poetry community was so far … well, underground.
