I am a freelance Writer and Educator with an unshakable love for great stories. Prior to my current life adventures, I was a Theatre Artist for over a decade: writing, performing, and directing plays throughout North America. There's nothing like a live audience to let you know when a story is, or isn't working. Theatre taught me so much about character development, dialogue, pacing, and engaging story telling; I'm grateful. I'm also grateful to be living a much more peaceful life these days.

Today I live in a delightful little town with a great partner and an adorable puppy, named Bernie. I am embrace a zero-waste, minimalist, eco-friendly lifestyle, and I record my adventures in my blog, Oak & Whimsy.

Favorite Books

Favorite Quotes

Hello babies. Welcome to Earth. It's hot in the summer and cold in the winter. It's round and wet and crowded. On the outside, babies, you've got a hundred years here. There's only one rule that I know of, babies:

God damn it, you've got to be kind.

-Kurt Vonnegut
