I've been writing since before I could actually pick up a pen. Writing is more than just putting pen to paper or pixel to screen -- it's an entire process of thought and observation. And I love every minute of it.

I'd like to share this with you. Do you have a short story or a novel that's been nagging at you? Do you want to sharpen your skills or get candid yet considerate feedback? I would love to work with you to meet your writing goals.

A little about me: I've made my living as a freelance writer and editor for nearly two decades, working in journalism as well as marketing/public relations. On the creative side, I have been fairly widely published, performed my work all over the Bay Area as well as in New York and Texas, and held residencies at The MacDowell Colony, Kimmel Harding Nelson Center for the Arts and The Julia and David White Artists' Colony. I earned my MFA in creative writing from St. Mary's College of California and got teaching experience while living overseas in the Czech Republic.

Get in touch and we'll hash out a plan to get you writing -- today.

Public Speaking

I am a seasoned public speaker who has given presentations and workshops. I've also performed my work in San Francisco, New York and Texas, and have been featured in many reading series around the San Francisco Bay Area. I also have teaching experience in front of a classroom. I am a confident - and, I believe, engaging - public speaker.
