Creativity /// Community /// Advocacy

Photo credit: Britt Olsen-Ecker

I’ve worked at the intersection of creativity, community, and advocacy for my entire career β€” from literary magazines and book publishers to arts-based non-profits. I’ve supported underserved young women in finding their voices through writing, celebrated the global creative community, and represented authors whose work catalyzes social change, challenges the status quo, and gives voice to the underrepresented.

Now, I champion literary achievement and the free expression rights that make it possible β€” defending a free press, elevating voices that have traditionally been marginalized, and advocating for the transformative power of written word in cities and communities across the country.

I'm a native Coloradan but I call New York City home, and pieces of my heart are scattered around Taos, Charlottesville, and Lima. In the hours outside 9-5, you can find me book-in-hand or eye-to-viewfinder. I send miscellany. out twice a month. I like adventures and am never not searching for tacos.

Let’s do cool things together. β†’
