Washington born and bred! I grew up in the foothills of the Cascades, and can't imagine a better place to live.
Last year, I cut the cord and quit my 9-5 to build a career as a freelance writer. It was a big, scary chance to take, and easily the best decision I've ever made.
When I'm not pitching articles, I build kayaks, and help teach workshops all over the world. You never know what life might throw your way, but I've learned the value in saying "yes."
I have a flexible schedule that allows me to help out during the work day.
