Words are living creatures, with moods, traits and energies all their own. My life as a writer began when I realized this—and found deep satisfaction in using nothing fancier than 26 letters and a few symbols to capture, inspire, provoke, and entertain.

Professionally, I have a decade of experience in virtually every channel of advertising generating ideas and finding the right words to express them.

Personally, I have a love of New Journalism, comedy and poetry, publishing the former on a global level and writing/performing the latter in the Chicago area.

My education includes a BS in Mass Communications and an MS in Copywriting from the VCU Brandcenter, but it is shaped just as much by moving to NYC broke at 21, being raised in an alternative household and following a circuitous path since I learned to walk.

To sum, I am an original, versatile writer with a passion for telling stories true and false and capturing worlds real and imaginary; for driving inspiration and drawing emotion; and ultimately for creating transformative experiences.

I do this for a living, and I do this for life.
