I am a writer. I am a correspondent for the Capital Press, a regional newspaper covering and agricultural business and policy news and in California, Oregon, Washington and Idaho. I am a nationally award-winning writer and hold a master’s degree in journalism from the University of Oregon.


I am a history buff.  I hold a Bachelor of Arts in history from the University of Oregon, which has equipped me well in research, investigation, multicultural insight and understanding of the world.

I am an artist.  Art is a language — it speaks when words fall short.  I bring my artistic eye to everything I do: photography, videography, illustration and multimedia storytelling.

I am a speaker.  I have been invited to speak at events across the U.S. about history, human trafficking, adoption and other global issues.

I grew up on a ranch in Eugene, Oregon. In my free time, I enjoy mountain climbing, ballroom dancing and playing the piano.
