I’ve always had a bit of an adventurous, entrepreneurial spirit.

When I write, it’s to tell a story.

It doesn’t matter if I’m helping an international hospitality brand with their messaging or chasing down that last quote for a story on deadline, the goal is the same.

That story has taken all sorts of twists and turns over the last six years. It started when I was hired as the director of a cocktail festival in Los Angeles. I opened a new chapter when I moved back to my native Portland in 2016 and began freelancing for local, regional and national media outlets.

With the Rose City as my home base, I now write copy and messaging for a growing roster of travel, hospitality, and health & wellness brands. On the journalism side, I cover all things luxury for Penta and mid-level real estate trends for Apartment Therapy.

I’ve been the architect of a range of partnership agreements including six-figure title sponsorships, metric-driven media initiatives and more. A majority of these deals occurred while I was guiding a major cocktail festival in California, working with the world’s biggest liquor companies. I’ve also successfully negotiated agreements in other industries including media, non-profit and travel.
