Writer of dirty first drafts and epic finals.

I’m a nerd for both the analytical and creative aspects of writing and marketing. There is no greater question than ‘why.’ Why does this work? Why should we build this? Why should you care? Every project should start with a clear purpose.

Originally from the Midwest, I’ve spent a few years on both coasts throwing myself headfirst into every form of communication. I am a freelance magazine writer and the communications coordinator at a nonprofit. 

When I'm not writing for other adults, I enjoy creating science fiction and fantasy stories for middle grade and young adult readers. I’m a member of Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators (SCBWI), and a former co-editor for the Wisconsin SCBWI blog.
