I'm currently moving around the country a lot working on farms and picking up freelance writing gigs. I write fiction, nonfiction and for the web. I grew up on a farm in Iowa. I attended the University of Iowa for English. After school I worked for The Nature Conservancy for a little while, but then I quit to travel and write. I love music, reading, writing, and photography.
Currently in: Chico, CA
Heading to: Syracuse, NY
