I'm a professional travel writer, researcher, and photographer. I've written on Hawaii, Toronto, Boston, Chicago, Singapore, Malaysia, Cambodia, Mexico, Italy, and Greece. I spend a lot of time away on long research trips, usually a couple months at a time, but I can offer services virtually or do in person workshops in Seattle, when I'm in town.
I've been writing and editing for years in a range of settings: as a traveler, for a cookbook company, literary magazine editor, and co-teacher in the Women's Creative Writing Program at the King County Jail.
My own creative writing is mostly poetry and short nonfiction, but my editing covers fiction and academic essays. I have been published in all genres of writing (academic, fiction, memoir/creative nonfiction, poetry).
