I’m an award-winning writer and editor who grew up in California and resides in Iowa, where I spent nearly 13 years writing and editing for the University of Iowa.
I’m currently a freelancer and regular contributor to the Etsy blog, Moda’s blog The Cutting Table, and a columnist for the French magazine Quilt Country. I shoot engaging photos to accompany my writing. I have more than two decades of experience writing for magazines including Stitch (where I’m a contributing editor), American Patchwork and Quilting, Uppercase, Quilts and More, Quilt Sampler, Parents, and others. I write for University of Iowa publications, served as production editor of a pediatric newsletter, and am the author of the book Facing East, Facing West: Iowa’s Old Capitol Museum and the upcoming Art Quilts of the Midwest. I shine at writing about people and their passions, be they scientists, beekeepers, or architectural historians. I’m available for print, web, and book assignments.
