Hi there – I’m a writer and poet living in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.
In October 2018, I started working as the Marketing & Communications Manager at Riveredge Nature Center. Until spring 2019 I’ll also be a full-time student in the journalism program at the University of Wisconsin – Milwaukee.
In the past I’ve worked as the Communications Specialist at Schlitz Audubon Nature Center in Milwaukee, where I was able to write about nature-related topics, edit the writing of naturalists, ghostwrite for colleagues, and generally use multimedia to promote regional flora and fauna. I’ve previously been a Pfister Hotel Narrator (story gatherer in residence) at Milwaukee’s historic “Grand Dame of the West” Pfister Hotel. At Milwaukee’s NPR station 89.7 WUWM I’ve been a contributor of poetry, interviews and essays to the Lake Effect show.
I love being active in every season. When it’s warm I ride motorcycles and bicycles to places where you can hear the birds. When it’s cold I chase deer, split firewood, and (if there’s snow) ski cross country.
