I started my career with four years as an editor at the then-brand-new Dwell, the magazine about modern architecture and design. There, I wrote about architecture all over the world, covering everything from inspirational architecture to aspirational design, penning service stories and Q&As, long-form features and short, snappy blurbs.
From there, I was the senior editor for Portland Monthly's design publication, Portland Spaces, telling readers about Portland's artisan scene, along with city-building and urban planning, and launching, writing, and editing a weekly email newsletter and blog for the magazine.
I then became a freelance writer and editor. For print, I was a contributing editor for Dwell for many years, and I've written for publications like the New York Times, Wallpaper*, Portland Monthly, FRAME, Sunset, Domino, Interior Design, and GOOD. For digital, I was a founding editor for Apartment Therapy's parenting site, Dwell's digital platform, and Williams-Sonoma's kitchen design site, and I've been a contracted writer for digital platforms like Remodelista and Build a Better Burb. For sponsored content, I’ve worked with companies like GOOD, Windermere, MATTE, Metropolis, and Opticos Design writing multi-part digital series, print collateral, ad campaigns, website text, and celebrity interviews for clients such as Ford, Pepsi, 70 Rainey, ILVE, Laufen, Andersen Windows + Doors, and BLANCO.
In addition, for the past five years I’ve been a contract developmental editor for the Seattle-based publishing firm Girl Friday Productions, working on titles of all kinds, including cyber thrillers, historical romances, YA dystopian trilogies, international translations, and personal memoirs—some of which have become bestsellers. I’ve also edited and helped write various nonfiction titles.
I get to tell stories. In all kinds of ways, for all kinds of clients.
