I am a writer. I am a field reporter for the Capital Press, covering stories in California, Oregon, Washington and Idaho. My “beat” (that’s journalism-speak for the topic I cover) is agriculture and related issues. I am a nationally award-winning writer and hold a master’s degree in Journalism from the University of Oregon.


I am a historian.  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 and skills to everything I do: graphics, photography, marketing and advertising, drawing and painting, web design, videography and multimedia storytelling.

I am a speaker.  I have been invited to speak at numerous events across the U.S. about history, sex trafficking, adoption and foster care,  genocide and a variety of other global issues.

I grew up on a sustainable conservation and research ranch in Eugene, Oregon. In my free time, I enjoy riding my mountain bike, ballroom dancing and playing the piano with my Lovebird, Fiesta, on my shoulder.
