Man sitting on a bluff overlooking the ocean

Writer & Editor
 

Writer

I have been a writer as far back as I can remember. From winning a radio contest for a written story to be read live on air in second grade to the publication of my first book, I have experienced much of what it means to be writer, and now I look for opportunities to utilize and share my experience, talent, and passion.

Editor

My editing career began in 2015, and my subsequent experience is bolstered by my years of experience in journalism, writing groups, and as a college English tutor. As an editor, I seek to help authors bring out their own stories and nurture their own visions and abilities.
