Creative Writer & Narrative Strategist

A native of Houston, Texas, I'm a journalist, creative writer, and narrative strategist. I'm a contributing writer for the soon-to-be-launched Ontario-based magazine kaur.space, and I've previously written for the online magazine VocaLady and the blog of the Houston-based arts education nonprofit Writers in the Schools. My narrative strategy work includes managing publicity, grant proposals, marketing strategy, and web & social media copy for local and national advocacy campaigns and non-profit organizations.
