More About Me
For more than a decade, I have written for and collaborated with publications, development organizations, and international brands to amplify people, projects, and news in an increasingly noisy world.
Though I am currently living as an American expatriate in Kyiv, Ukraine, my journey to this point started on a matatu stuck in the mud during monsoon season in rural Kenya.
I enjoy working on challenging and creative projects that tackle complex issues, especially as they relate to the travel and tourism industry. I love to light a fire in people through high-quality storytelling.
I especially appreciate working with clients, editors, and producers who want to amplify compelling narratives from underrepresented parts of the world.
