I’m a trained journalist, a creative writer, illustrator and author, with a diverse writing portfolio. I’ve published articles for Elephant Journal, Stigma Fighters, Niche Quitte, UBlush and Edie.net. As a journalist, I’ve written about music, underground art, travel, environmental issues, and advocacy pieces on mental health, childhood abuse and sexual trauma. I’m deeply passionate about all of these subjects, and bring a lifetime of experience and research to my features, articles and interviews. As a creative writer and blogger, I’ve written historical fiction, romance, life stories and poetry. I’m a multimedia storyteller, incorporating imagery as a visual artist/illustrator, words, as a writer and poet, and audio art, as a singer/lyricist. No area of creative expression is off-limits in my view- there’s a place and time for everything, and I strive for excellence in every field of the arts that I embark upon.
