I am an ardent logophile, located in the enchanting Pacific Northwest. My background and education is in journalism, but I'm regularly chasing opportunities to write in new ways and styles on a variety of topics. I love wielding words and language to help other people, groups and organizations share their stories in engaging, moving and accurate ways. Writing also is my method for communicating the thoughts, opinions and knowledge I possess and hold dear in order to connect with other humans and construct shared meaning.
I hold a bachelor's degree in communications with a focus on journalism. Over the years, I've written hundreds of news and feature articles for various publications, covering a variety of topics including local and state government; business and development; social and environmental issues; health and wellness; education; and community events. My commercial work includes more than 200 assignments, from blog and social media posts to web and newsletter content, for clients across the country.
