About Me


I’m an award-winning writer living in Portland, Oregon. As an entrepreneur, I started and managed several businesses, including a successful custom frame shop, a high-end art gallery and Southern Oregon’s first Internet coffeehouse.

As a writer, my creative work has won awards, been anthologized and has appeared in several books and magazines. My story “Stranded in Kosmas” was nominated for inclusion in the Best Creative Nonfiction Vol. 3 from W.W. Norton.

My professional writing has appeared thousands of times in dozens of publications including Forbes, Fortune, VentureBeat, Portland Business Journal, SFGate and USA Today, among many others.

I specialize in technology, healthcare and business writing. I offer high-quality content, professional service and I work within your deadlines.
