About

I write, draw, swim, and love to drink beer. 

I'm a freelance journalist and editor working with several publications and clients on a range of projects and subjects. I earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Language (German) from Georgetown University in 2000 and a Master of Arts degree in Publishing and Writing from Emerson College in 2006. Check out my online portfolio for clips of my work.

I'm also a working artist specializing in pastel drawings of animals. I take commissions for all sorts of pieces. Message me for details. 

When I'm not writing or drawing, I'm probably swimming--I'm a marathon and ice swimmer getting up to some chilly shenanigans in the most beautiful places on earth.
