Born and raised in Virginia, I’m currently a freelance copywriter/ACD working in New York City.

I believe that creativity is problem-solving and that answers can come from the most unexpected places. Also that a long walk outdoors can cure most anything.

Besides writing and hiking, my interests include exploring different cultures, making things by hand, trivia, leading a hygge lifestyle and leaving this world a better place than I found it.
