I tell stories – my own, strangers’, and the fiction I make up in my head. I’m interested in sharing real human experiences through creative mediums such as video, audio, and written word.
I’ve been telling stories my whole life – verbally, on paper, online, and through photos and videos. I enjoy capturing a feeling and sharing it through multiple mediums. I’m interested in finding new ways of engaging audiences and pulling them into stories.
I’m a journalist and freelance writer and have written for a variety of publications, including Teen Vogue, SELF, Girlboss, and USA Today. I currently work at Maine magazine as the associate editor, where I write articles, edit content, and assist with developing the editorial calendar. Previously, I was the magazine’s senior editorial assistant and the editorial producer of the organization’s former podcast, Love Maine Radio.
I’ve written for multiple New England-based newspapers, have spent time in London as a travel writer, and have been published in a creative nonfiction journal. In 2018, I received a third place award in the New England Newspaper and Press Association’s Better Newspaper Contest. In 2017, I received two awards from the Maine Press Association – first place for a news health story and second place for a news analysis story.
I’ve photographed people and events for print and online publications and have created videos of festivals and sporting events. I’ve created websites for businesses, and have created graphic designs and social media posts for publications and nonprofit organizations.
I’m working on my first novel. Please ask me about it. It motivates me.
I’m a New Hampshire native living in Portland, Maine.
Aside from writing, my interests include reading books and magazines, hunkering down in coffee shops, and enjoying Maine’s coast and mountains.
