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 and began freelancing for a variety of national media outlets and international clients.

Now, I split my time covering luxury and lifestyle for Penta while copywriting for a growing roster of travel & hospitality brands.

I’ve been the architect of a range of partnership agreements including six-figure title sponsorships, mutual value trades 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.
