I'm a writer, award-winning blogger, essayist, and (sometimes) speaker.
My work has been featured online and in print internationally including magazines, two books, and my own various sites and projects. At age 17, I fought stage 4B Lymphoma cancer, the experience of which continues to shape both the way I live and the way I write. My work is part personal story, part skepticism, always respectful of the grit it takes to be an authentic human being, woman, and creative. I've also worked as a fashion journalist, won 2012 Fashion Blog of the Year Award in Seattle, spent a few years as a fashion PR gal, and served a year in Americorp.
Below you'll find links to my work around the web, as well as my blog of weekly personal essays and short stories.
