**This page, like me, is a work in progress

I’m a writer of creative nonfiction (among other things).

I’m a tea drinker. I’m a stationery addict and annual Back to School shopper. I’m a collector of blank notebooks I’m sure I’ll never be able to fill (there are simply too many). I’m a Swingline stapler aficionado. I’m a Mary Jane wearer. I am a choir singer, a pianist, a photographer, a baker. I’m extremely organized and a fan of paper calendars.

If you want to give me a bouquet of Dixon Ticonderoga #2s, I wouldn’t complain in the least.

I’m an introvert who speaks best through printed words on a page.
