I’m a writer and editor specializing in food, drink, travel, and all the other things that make life fun. I contribute regularly to a wide range of local and national print and online publications. I’ve managed a range of print and online publications, including The Whiskey Wash and Edible Portland. In 2017, I won the Alan Lodge Young Drinks Writer of the Year award. You can check out some of my journalism and editorial work on my Portfolio page.

When I'm not working on stories, I help businesses and nonprofits grow by consulting on communications and marketing projects, raising money with business plans and grant proposals, and writing commercial and advertising copy. Over the years, I've helped hundreds of organizations raise millions of dollars. I’m an associate at A to Be Partners, a boutique development consultancy providing tailored support to nonprofit organizations of every size. I also work closely with a wide range of business clients, from major international firms to startups and small businesses. 

I attended Reed College in Portland, Oregon, where I still live. In my free time, I enjoy gardening, cooking, and walking long distances.
