Freelance Writing

“You may not be the first person to say it, but your saying it might be the first time someone hears it. So we need you to say it.”

I read these words on a friend's blog in 2012, the Golden Age of Blogging, and it's always stuck with me.

I'm here to say it. Because I spent way too much of my life not using my voice and not sharing my stories. Now, I share the moments that have shaped and changed me in hopes that something will echo and inspire my readers to cultivate lives of beauty, simplicity, freedom and adventure...right where they are. 

I have over 20 years experience in creative writing and marketing copy for the music industry, non-profits, and small businesses (including three of my own!). And for 12 years, I documented life and shared my journey towards simpler living on my personal blog, Dreams of Simple Life.  See more of my experience and writing samples below. I'd love to hear from you!
