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’m the managing editor at The Whiskey Wash, an award-winning website about the world’s favorite brown spirit, and the former managing editor of 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 creating strategic development strategies, writing business plans and grant proposals, and crafting commercial copy. Over the years, I've helped hundreds of organizations raise millions of dollars in financing. I am an associate at A to Be Partners, a boutique development consultancy providing tailored support to nonprofit organizations of every size. I also work directly with a wide range of business clients in need of copywriting and storytelling, 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.
