I'm a writer and editor living in Northfield, Minnesota — home of "cows, colleges, and contentment," just south of the Twin Cities. I specialize in magazine feature writing on topics that I'm passionate about: food, travel, the arts, and Nordic culture in general. But I'm comfortable with a wide variety of assignments, including marketing and promotions, grants, press releases, websites, and instructional copy.

Contact me to discuss writing or editing projects. I'd love to put my communications experience to work for you!
