My Work

I tell stories. With more than 10 years of professional writing experience and a love of photography and the arts, I strive to engage and inspire through my craft.

I worked as a journalist in Alaska for more than six years. During that time I interviewed thousands of people, traveled to rural areas, and gained a deep understanding of my community.

Since leaving the daily journalism grind in 2018, I continue to freelance and meet people from around the state. I’m also digging deep into my creative works and loving every minute of it.

Please feel free to reach out if you have content you need help with, or collaborations you’re considering.
