You are likely to find me writing, either at a laptop or with a calligraphy pen. I am likely wearing cowgirl boots, listening to a podcast, and popping some cinnamon gum. I'm in relentless pursuit of that creative life, my heart's aim since I was coloring with a box of 64.
WRITER/EDITOR - My writing has appeared in The Boston Globe, McSweeney's, Skirt Magazine and more. I gravitate toward human interest and memoir writing. I am interested in freelance reporting and essay writing opportunities.
CALLIGRAPHER - I have always loved handlettering, the meditation of the process and the beauty of the product. The cliche of Catholic school penmanship is true in my case--the nuns schooled me right ;)
I attended Allegheny College where I graduated magna cum laude with a B.A. in political journalism. I earned my M.L.A. in extension studies with a concentration in journalism from Harvard University. Whether full-time or on a contract basis, writing will always be at the cornerstone of my profession.
Journalism engages my technical side, whereas handlettering allows me to use my hands more freely.
I live with my husband and our two young children. We do our part in supporting America's dairy farmers by eating all the ice cream.
