My parents always used to say I was “born with a pencil in my hand.” (Luckily, my mom survived. Heyo!)

As far back as I can remember, I’ve loved drawing and writing—from sketching loved ones to writing poetry for the school newspaper.

This love has informed my career and hobbies. Now, you can find me writing everything from silly jokes and snarky blog posts to critical copy for fundraising campaigns and educational programs that are changing the world. I use my communication skills to make people laugh and make the world a more just and compassionate place.

When I’m not writing, I enjoy reading, traveling, dabbling in comedy and music, and spending time with my family—a hardworking boy, a whip-smart dog, and a wise and judgmental cat.

I work full time in non-profit marketing and communications, and in my spare time I’m writing a book about my soulmate, a dog named Dakota, who passed away in June 2020 and changed my life forever.
