I’m a writer of fiction and essays. I studied Creative Writing at Oxford Brookes University, in Oxford, UK, and English at the University of Pittsburgh in Pittsburgh, PA. In 2015 I was resident of Art Farm (ask me about the bats). I’ve participated in both the Rittenhouse Writers Group and Backyard Writers Workshop, and credit both but especially the Backyard Writers for making me a better writer.
I’m represented by Soumeya Roberts of Hannigan, Salky, and Getzler (HSG) Agency for my forthcoming novel Those We Keep.
In my work I explore family, relationships, politics, and existing as a woman.
While still early in my photography journey, I’m drawn to finding beauty in the world. My photographs include the people, places, environments, and things that inspire me, and I’m always looking to grow more as a photographer. You can view samples of my work here and here.
In 2017, I co-founded the sustainable fashion company And We Evolve. I’ve always loved fashion, and have always understood it as its own art form; one that represents our individual personalities every day. However, what I don’t love about the fashion industry is how awful it is for the environment and for the people - mostly young women - who work to make our clothes. I’m deeply invested in the belief that we can have a better relationship with our clothes, including understanding of where our clothes come from and how this impacts our relationship with the world. These are the foundational principles my partner Liz Funk and I brought to And We Evolve.
And We Evolve is on a mission to disrupt fast fashion and create a more sustainable fashion culture for women via normalizing and beautifying recycled clothes. And We Evolve offers a subscription box of secondhand clothing in like-new condition tailored to the individual styles of our customers.
Because, after all, the world doesn’t need another $7 dress.
Writing + photography. Fashion + travel. Dreaming + growing + learning.
I love collaborations and am always interested in partnering for new work, whether artistic or business.
