Hello! Welcome to my site. I hope my work serves testament to my passion of writing, especially of the narrative variety. I am an award-winning media professional who is always looking for new opportunities within the communications fields.

Check out my portfolio page on Contently.com for my most recent work. Or click here to see my LinkedIn profile.

In addition to writing, I also offer editing, proofreading and producing services. Have a project? Let’s chat!


I have recently (June 2017) followed my wife’s career path to the Minneapolis-St. Paul area.

Before coming to Minnesota, I worked as a science writer/news strategist for the College of Agriculture, Food and Natural Resources at the University of Missouri, a multimedia specialist video producer for Arvest Bank in Northwest Arkansas and an interactive web producer at WABC-TV in New York City.

In 2009, I moved to Connecticut to pursue my master’s degree in Interactive Communications at Quinnipiac University to expand my creativity as a writer into several digital platforms — while interning at Sports Illustrated Kids in the summer of 2010 during the process.

During my career, I have worn the hats of writer, editor, producer, blogger, designer, photographer and cameraman.  I’ve worked in the mediums of newspapers, magazines, video production, TV, digital marketing, public/media relations and internal communications. I look forward to see what the future holds in the coming months.
