SUMMARY & BACKGROUND

I'm a creative producer, editor and writer with a background in psychology, education and literary theory—experienced in creating and curating content for web-consumers. Much of my work is comprised of conceptual development and superintendent production for boutique brands on major digital media platforms.

I was raised in Northwest Oregon and spent my formative years living in an industrial farming community of migrant-laborers near the Columbia River Gorge. I have brothers. We spent our days playing around machinery, in the creek and with our animals.  I attended local public schools and excelled in English and athletics.

Thereafter I completed undergraduate then graduate studies which included independent learning contracts, externships, study abroad modules, and clinical-training as an outpatient child and family psychotherapist. Since I've worked as an executive producer, academic and human resources generalist specializing in executive development and ethical systems trainings.
