Born and raised in Virginia, Iā€™m currently a freelance copywriter/ACD living 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 outside can cure most anything.

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