I am a freelance writer and editor based in Tacoma, Washington. With more than a decade of experience in print journalism, my copy has been published in 425 Business magazine, Seattle Business magazine, South Sound BIZ, Seattle Times, The Business Report, Renton and Kent magazines, The Daily Record, the Ballard News Tribune, the Monroe Monitor, the Northwest Military publications, the Puyallup Herald, the Tacoma News Tribune, the Federal Way Mirror, and the Issaquah Reporter.

I was the full-time staff reporter for The Business Report and the Renton and Kent magazines from October 2004 through August 2010. From August 2010 through September 2014, I worked full-time as the news reporter for the Puyallup Herald covering community news of east Pierce County.

I am a 2003 graduate of Central Washington University in Ellensburg, Washington and hold a Bachelor’s of Arts in Print Journalism with a minor in Political Science.

I have a strong passion for community journalism and aspire to accuracy and balanced reporting in my writing. I also specialize in business magazine journalism. I’m especially interested in music journalism and currently publish a blog called Northwest Indie Music, which reports on new up and coming indie bands and artists in the greater Puget Sound region and Northwest.
