I grew up all around the Seattle area and had a good ten years in Spokane, Washington in my 20s. After a short stint back to Seattle for about three years in 2016, I met my husband and moved to his hometown in Montana. Now we spend our time indulging in the open spaces and big sky sunsets.

Writing and photography have remained my two greatest loves for almost 20 years. I have grown and developed in ways I never thought were possible and nothing makes me more happy than sharing that with people.

Thank you for being here and experiencing this all with me.


[Other odd tidbits: I enjoy eating sushi, playing Overwatch and Apex Legends on xbox, going to my local bar and drinking anything with Gin or Absinthe in it, watching Outlander obsessively with my husband and cat, while eating extreme dark chocolate. ]
