I  am a freelance writer, located just outside of Washington D.C., and have written lifestyle, technology, history, and travel pieces for a variety of publications including Mental Floss, Washingtonian, Virginia Living, Columbia, Not for Tourists, and Northern Virginia Magazine.


   My work has given me the chance to examine DNA through a multi million dollar 3-D mask, accompany Mark Warner on the campaign trail, watch engineers slam a brand new Mini Cooper into a concrete barrier, tour the Great Dismal Swamp on a fan boat, and witness a septuagenarian author smuggle fresh rolls out of a restaurant in her purse. (I didn’t narc.)

    In addition to my magazine work, I have also created a range of marketing materials for publications and businesses, including web content that has increased sites' web traffic by more than fifty percent. I bring a blend of creativity and diligence to every project I undertake.

    longtime resident of Virginia, I have a passion for history as well as issues affecting the Mid-Atlantic area, and I enjoy how my work allows me to learn more about both.
