I never planned on getting a graduate degree, but I completed a master's degree in rhetoric and writing in 2019. I worked in higher education for a few years and in the most curious and fascinating areas of accreditation, grant writing, and academic technology.

Creatively speaking, I write about the physical, emotional, and psychological connections people have with the natural world. And I really, really like to write about trees. My work has been published in over a dozen journals and a couple anthologies.

I try to be outside as often as I write. I love days at the beach and hiking (and will always scream at the large bugs). I grew up, went to college, and worked in Ohio for most of my life (like the really cold part, y'know ... snowbelt Ohio). Now, I live in Queensland, Australia.
