Where to find my work


Online publications 

For  the Portland Mercury, I reviewed Steve Almond's book "Bad StoriesWhat the Hell Just Happened to Our Country."

For Past Ten, I wrote a micro-essay about loneliness and how long it took me to realize I was a lesbian.

My essay, "Study of Bones," won the Pigeon Pages Fledgling Prose Competition and was nominated for the 2018 Pushcart Prize and for consideration in the Best American Essays 2018.  

For SELF,  I wrote a personal essay about how lifting weights lets me forget my body's "flaws."

For HoneyColony, I've written articles on, among other things...

For the Underground Health Reporter, I've written hundreds (yes, seriously) of articles. Here's few of my favorite topics...

I've also written, prepared, and photographed a number of recipes, including this one for smokey, sweet, peppery plant-based bacon.


Content writing and editing 

For the SS United States Conservancy, I created and edited a blog to broadcast firsthand accounts from individuals with deep connections to the SS United States, a historic ocean liner.

My web writing work includes site copy, press releases, e-newsletters, and social media posts as well, samples available upon request. 

I've also worked as ghostwritereditor, and research assistant on several book projects. Dan Buettner, two-time New York Times Bestselling author of The Blue Zones and Blue Zones of Happiness, called my most recent ghostwriting project "an IMPORTANT -- and user-friendly -- contribution to the growing body of literature showing that a move towards a plant-based diet is better for our body, soul, and planet."
