After studying the ocean and literature at UC Santa Cruz, I realized that I wanted to examine the world through writing. I'm currently studying fiction writing at Chapman University where I hope to integrate topics in environmentalism, ancient literature, and family dynamics into my projects.

My professional content writing experience centers on technical material in science and engineering.
