“‘The Promise of Water’ is as graceful as it is powerful —
a bracing and heart-breaking plunge into the mystery of identity, the boundlessness of love.”
Richard Adams Carey, author of IN THE EVIL DAY, THE PHILOSOPHER FISH, and AGAINST THE TIDE

By day, I write nonfiction. As a freelance writer with a focus on brand storytelling, I co-founded Tigermoth Creative and am part of a talented, full-service team in marketing communication. Together, we craft story-driven creative for brands that inspire us. I am also a mentor for aspiring writers and an after-school creative writing instructor using the nationally recognized Writopia method.

By night, I bring to life the fictional characters that cross my mind. Currently, my novel, The Promise of Water, is under the representation of Elizabeth Copps at the Maria Carvainis Agency. Currently, I’m working on several short fiction pieces and a second novel, Cloudspotting.

If you’re looking for a seasoned copywriter or you’re a fellow writer and want to chat about matters of fiction, marketing or the path to publishing, let’s connect.
