After graduating with my MFA in Creative Writing (fiction) from the University of Idaho, I taught creative writing at the university level for nearly a decade. Along the way I published a few stories (top) and some nonfiction, too (at the bottom). Enjoy!

As a child, I jotted poems in a notebook and hid them under my bed. It took me decades to come back to the practice. Here are a few poems published in recent years.

As a writer, I'm inspired by the literary greats, especially Ernest Hemingway. But as a person, I try not to take things too seriously, even Hemingway's bravado.
With that, I created #fakehemingway — a twist on Papa's myth and style for a modern age.
This portfolio combines the existing voices and brands of widely known companies with my unique style. Enjoy!
