I'm a New England-based freelance reporter, teacher, and board game designer.

I've written news and feature articles for publications such as the Valley News, Boston Globe, and Upper Valley Life.

I've taught writing and reporting classes at Colby-Sawyer College, Seattle Community College, and St. Michael's College.

I've lived mostly in Vermont and Maine, though I spent some formative years in Seattle, and I went to grad school in Berkeley, California.

Finally, I co-designed the board game Penny Press, which won the Tabletop Deathmatch design competion and was published by Asmadi Games.

It's a bit of a mix of things, now that I look at them all in a list. But do I enjoy the variety, and they give me a certain flexibility. Plus, they all share a common storytelling element.

Which makes sense.
