Welcome!

Welcome to my website portfolio, and thank you for visiting! Here you will find some of the work that highlights my career as an undergraduate in mass communication and creative writing. You will also find my updated resume and contact information.

I am a writer in all senses. I am especially interested in writing long-form profile and feature articles about people, their places, and their experiences. I began college with my interests primarily in news reporting, but have found I want to ask more questions and write more deeply. In my work, I intertwine my love for creative writing and journalism to explore and chronicle the world.

As of now, a senior in college, I am the assistant director of the Linfield Writing Center, and I intern at the News-Register in McMinnville, Ore. I was previously the managing editor for my school’s newspaper, The Linfield Review, and I also oversaw all of the copy editing.
I am primarily interested in sustainability and the environment, literature, spirituality, music, social issues, and lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) and human rights. Much of my research, writing, reading and tweeting consists of these subjects.

Once graduated, I hope to get my foot in the door copy editing or writing for a local newspaper and likely writing freelance. I’m interested in writing for magazines and online publications, both journalistic and literary. Once again, thank you for viewing my professional portfolio.
