From the first time I could hold a pencil (and know what it was for), I loved putting words on paper and telling stories in interesting ways. That passion has held true through writing for school newspapers, professional publishing and my work in the marketing field.
I hold a degree in Journalism with a concentration in Visual Communication, along with a secondary study in Sociology from Illinois State University. I have been published in dozens of Illinois newspapers, regional lifestyle magazines and websites, writing everything from local historical features, to large business profiles, website copy and native advertising pieces for businesses in virtually every vertical.
I published my first book, Beyond Silence and Light in September 2020, and am currently working on my second book, a collection of historical baseball essays. I also maintain a blog on baseball history and it’s many quirks.
In both my professional and personal life, I write a lot, which is great because, well, creating is awesome. I’m always lining up new projects, too.
The other stuff: Idealist. Dreamer. INFP. Midwestern native. Lover of sports, vinyl records and reading books.
Just rolling (and writing) along on life’s journey, wherever it may lead.
