"After nourishment, shelter and companionship, stories are the thing we need most in the world.

Philip Pullman


Thank you for visiting my professional website. I have always enjoyed stories and storytelling and that passion led to my career in the writing field. I attended Ohio University and earned a degree in journalism with a focus in creative writing at the nationally recognized E.W. Scripps School of Journalism. After graduation in 2002, I worked as a copy editor, feature writer, reporter, and sports editor at various newspapers in Ohio. I also taught writing and English for two years before returning to the writing profession.
