About Me

What I Write

I’m a freelance writer that specializes in non-fiction pieces on culture, art, and travel. In 2012, I attended the Clarion West writer’s workshop—and it changed everything. I met my future wife, mentors, and fast friends. I also heard a whisper in the dark.

It told me ghost stories, and sometimes I pass them on.

Write-a-thon Goals

Writing Goals

A rambunctious little toddler running around. New depths of impecuniousness. A tiny town at the bottom of a valley covered over by clouds and rain.

But time.


This summer I hope to complete my current project, a novel expected to by complete at ~120k words. On a good day, when I like some of what I have already written, I am just over halfway there. I’d like to use the write-a-thon to complete another 30 000 words.

Fundraising Goals

Pocket change, returned bottles, coins found on the roadside.
