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. 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.
