Working on my first fiction book is liberating: Facts fly out the window and research isn’t required. A spiritual-fantasy of far-flung beings in distant dimensions, this collection of poetry, essays and short tales is woven together by a main storyline. Inspiration arises from belief in the impossible and evolvement towards the miraculous. Stay tuned.

I love learning, which I’ve done by writing about topics like neuropsychology, urban wildlife, genetically prescribed nutritional profiles, leisure counseling and how songbirds are helping unravel human-hearing mysteries.

why work with me?

Equipped with a Bachelor of Science Degree in Journalism from Arizona State University, I’m a self-starter with solid research, interviewing, reporting, storytelling, writing, fact-checking and editing skills. Experienced envisioning the big picture, I’m comfortable working independently or collaboratively. From scribbling stories in my mind to spilling them onto the screen, I take projects from conception to completion or can pick up pieces at any stage. Strengths:

  1. Uncovering obscure yet relevant information 

  2. Spotting trends

  3. Tracking down experts with fresh findings and perspectives

  4. Capturing compelling quotes and anecdotes to help humanize and shape stories
