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.
Here you'll find personal stories of love,
growth and learning the hard way. Updated weekly(ish).
