I have a compulsion to write. This has led me to a rewarding adventure over the past six years discovering that everyone has a story to tell. Currently, I am fulfilling my passion covering social and environmental justice issues and running morning shows as a board operator for KBOO-FM in Portland, Oregon.

I’ve had the awesome pleasure to work for multiple publications, such as Eugene Weekly, Ethos Magazine, and The Daily Emerald, covering a wide range of issues as they bubbled beneath the surface of the public’s attention at the time. From writing about a University of Oregon transgender student’s experience trying to join Greek Life, funding for gender-inclusive bathrooms, and the debate over single payer healthcare and how this directly impacts the most financially vulnerable in America.

Have a great day!
