Professional Experience

I've covered everything from a Western author's new book to an archeological dig at a former Japanese internment camp. I have written science articles, book reviews, human interest pieces, profiles, and personal essays for regional and national publications, the Web and literary magazines. I have a Master of Fine Arts in creative writing and am a rigorous researcher and careful writer.
