Writing

Creating worlds and cultivating words feeds my soul.

Reading

My first love! Before writing I found books. Each story was a way of transporting me to another world.

Photographing

Photography is an extension of my story telling, I love visually telling a story through the images I capture.

Web & Graphic Design

Creating is the spice of life. I create web and graphics for small business and nonprofits, and even book covers for other authors.

Exercise & Cycling Enthusiast

Exercise is such an important part of my day. Cycling and weights are my favorite. They keep me healthy and filled with energy.

Editorials

My love of design, photography and writing lead me to create a magazine centered on women's empowerment and purpose.
