What I Do

I blend my love of words and A talent for creating visually stunning images to create content that helps businesses and brands connect with and grow their communities.

Currently you will find me working on my literary magazine, BLACKBERRY: a magazine, collaborating with Robin Sandomirsky for liberated lines, writing freelance articles, photographing food, restaurants, and brands, as well as developing content for Annnapurna Living by Carrie-Anne Moss

In the past I've published personal essays, creative nonfiction, and poetry for a variety of online and print publications as well as created content for and facilitated online creative writing courses.

Who I Am

As a freelance writer and photographer, my ultimate goal is to tell the truest of true stories.

I have a gift for holding sacred space, for deep listening, and for seeing the ordinary in extraordinary ways. I love the feeling of heat in my hands, the weight of linen across my body, the warmth of knotty pine beneath my feet. If I could be anything and do anything, it would be exactly what I'm doing now: Being a wife and a mother of 3 living out her creative journeyโ€“but maybe with a view of a vineyard from the kitchen window. I'm interested in exploring the depth of motherhood, creativity, food & wine, literature & writing, and all things beautiful.

If I had to summarize myself in a list of textures, it would go something like this: hand-scraped wood, shiny brass, natural linen, cotton, velvet, leather & lace.

I'm taking the Certified Sommelier Exam in 2017 and daydreaming about moving our family to California wine country. You can read my lifestyle blog, SOMMERSALT, here.
