(That’s me)

It’s so difficult trying to write about yourself and who you are. I’ve rewritten this page ten times over and still I’m not satisfied with it. Rather than try again, I’ll just keep it simple this time.

I’m a writer. I didn’t grow up wanting to be a writer, but I am one now and love using that title more than anything else in this world. I’m from Massachusetts and have a degree in kinesiology. I grew up admiring the outdoors, and have made a number of life-based decisions as a result of that admiration. I could go on forever about our world and the magical places it supports. They fill my heart to the brim, and my writing tends to reflect that love whenever possible.

I live in Portland, Oregon now, working with Willamette Week while juggling myriad clients that operate in the construction, cannabis, technology, startup, and outdoor industries. I’m twenty-four years old and still honing my skills. I’ve decided that I’ll do my best to leave the world in a better state than I found it. Words have the power to help me fulfill this goal – I intend to use them for that very purpose.
