I am a freelance writer with experience working professional for online publications, nonprofit organizations, and start-ups. My work has appeared in the Seattle Times, The Awl Network (The Awl, Hairpin, Billfold), Brokelyn, Pacific Northwest Inlander, and many other arts, culture, education and technology blogs and zines. I have contributed copywriting for New School, copyediting and prooftreading for Council on Foreign Relations, and profiles on leaders in the open source world for Mozilla Foundation. My specialities include zine librarianship and conducting ethnographic interviews and qualitative research for professional arts and educational organizations. 

For a select list of most recent publications, please see my writing. My work experience is unique, as you can see from LinkedIn. Every position and writing assignment I've worked comes with its own story.
