I’m an award-winning interior design student and writer based in Atlanta, where I study at the Savannah College of Art and Design.

My writing has appeared in dozens of newspapers including the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel and the Wisconsin State Journal, and I’ve written for San Francisco magazine, Madison Magazine, 77 Square, Isthmus and Wisconsin Public Television. I earned an M.A. in journalism from the University of Wisconsin-Madison and an M.F.A. in fiction from the Iowa Writers’ Workshop.

My past positions include working as the spokeswoman for the American Civil Liberties Union of Wisconsin, as a reporter at the Wisconsin Center for Investigative Journalism, as a writer and editor for media and software companies, and as a writing instructor at the University of Iowa.
