I am a creative writer and editor based in Portland, Oregon.
In 2013, I fled my Northern California roots and moved to "the big city" of Portland to study English Lit & Creative Writing at Portland State University. I worked in various cafes around the city, making friends and finding creative community over sleepy eyes and wobbly latte art.
Nine years later, and Portland feels like my second home.
I was a senior prose editor at Typehouse Literary, a writer-run, print and digital lit-mag, for five years. I am a workshop facilitator and community coordinator with the nonprofit The People's Colloquium, who distribute grants to community education groups in the arts & humanities.
I am also a novice copywriter. I've written CPG copy for landing pages, Facebook ads, email marketing campaigns and narrative blog posts.
My creative writing can be found in lit-mags like JMWW and Little Fictions | Big Truths, as well as zines like Coffee People, and print magazines like World Literature Today. I would like to gather my essays and small fictions into a collection, and have someone help me print and distribute that collection someday.
