How I can be found most of the time: curled up on the couch with a book and my cats. Portrait by Riley Sheehey.
I’m a Midwest-born, Boston-based writer looking to get my first novel published. I have been putting words down on paper (or typing them on a keyboard) for as long as I can remember. I hold an MFA in Creative Writing from Emerson College, and was lucky enough to take a creative writing class at Kenyon College as an undergrad, although my desire to study abroad in Paris is what drove me to major in French instead of English.
Full-time, I work as an account director at Metter Media, a Boston-based social media management company. Writing captions for social media is an excellent way to hone your editing skills (there is nothing more satisfying than getting something down to exactly 280 characters). I also freelance as a Search Engine Optimization (SEO) specialist, doing website audits for small companies. Writing is the foundation for both pursuits, the basis of my career, and the reason for everything I do.
