I am a creative and technical writer with over 10 years of marketing and publishing experience. I have composed short and long-form copy in a range of capacities and industries, with a niche market writing on behalf of law firms, legal marketing departments, legal information companies, non-profits, and government entities in the U.S. and internationally.

I have BAs in Anthropology and English literature from the University of Arizona. In 2003, I received the Royal Stone Scholarship from University of Minnesota Law School and graduated cum laude in 2006. After passing the Minnesota Bar Exam, I moved to New York City and was awarded the MacCracken Fellowship from New York University to pursue a Ph.D. in law and literature before starting my own freelance business in 2008.

In 2010, I left the U.S. and traveled through Australia, Central America, East Asia, Africa, the UK, and Europe, to travel and focus on my personal writing. My work has been published in  Slow Travel Berlin, Illustrated Guide to LifeThe Del Sol ReviewHairpinThe Accidental ExtremistShepherd Express, Thought Catalog, and Milwaukee Magazine. I also worked as a contributing writer for American Public Media’s Life of the Law, a podcast and magazine dedicated to exploring the role of the law in shaping culture and society. I am currently producing and hosting my own podcast called About Face, focused on stories of personal growth and transformation.

I am committed to storytelling in all of its various forms, including music, photography, and on-stage. I have performed at San Francisco’s Fireside StorytellingLitUP, and live at the Porchlight series. In Berlin, I am a participant in
