I obtained massive amounts of student loan debt and earned degrees in communication from Ohio University and San Diego State University. My work has been published in The Billfold, the International Journal of Intercultural Relations, Scary Mommy, Street Carnage, and Defenestration Magazine. I also wrote a book called The Imperfect Enjoyment, which, thanks to my Uncle Boo, was popular among inmates in Ohio’s criminal justice system.

I began my career as a project director at a community health center and an adjunct faculty member at a large public university. Now I am a self-employed writer for hire. In short, I develop messaging that enables organizations and individuals to accomplish their communicative goals. My recent projects have included:

  • Revising personal statements and cover letters for job seekers and potential graduate/medical students
  • Writing website copy and managing digital marketing efforts for a community healthcare organization
  • Drafting grant proposals for a clinical group seeking to expand its chronic care capacity
  • Creating messaging for a social justice campaign that increased voter participation among historically infrequent voters

I am always looking to take on new projects, more so now than ever since my three boys are getting older and becoming less accepting of hand-me-downs. Feel free to send a message if you need assistance with a project. You can also view my resume, which lists recent long-term assignments and helps to convince you that I am worthy of your money.

As for this website, it’s an “Occasionally Hilarious, Always Interesting” collection of short stories and blog posts relating to travel and finance, the peculiarities of children, and the various adventures in which I wander. Please be warned that once I finish my next book, you will bear witness to an obscene amount of self-promotion.

Thank you for reading.
