A natural-born storyteller
I have been a writer for as long as I can remember. It started with short stories and poetry when I was eight years old, continued with my time at the University of Toledo where I learned the ropes as a news reporter, and blossomed in Tokyo where I was a writer and Chief Editor at of one of the biggest English media companies in Japan.
Combining journalistic standards of accuracy and in-depth reporting with engaging storytelling is where I thrive. I have written about traveling in Japan, training as a Buddhist monk, university scandals, protests, breaking news, and beyond. If there’s one thing I know how to do, it’s paint a vivid picture with both words and visuals that will draw the reader straight into the story.
After a four-year journey working in Japan as an English teacher and digital content writer/editor, I am now based in my hometown of Detroit, Michigan.
Previous work includes articles covering travel, features, culture, history, and news.
