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.
