About Me


Dear You,

I’m a poet, photographer, designer and new mom.
I love watching water of any kind move; cleaning my son’s boogers and buying him kick-ass clothes (it’s a sickness); my baby daddy; a blue-eyed cat named Tula Bear and big-sis to jack; almond joys; beer you can’t see through; oak-ish sound; highway lines; sitting next to rivers.

Raised in Davis California, I studied photojournalism and creative writing at The University of Montana, Missoula, wandered into West Texas for a spell, fumbled through Pennsylvania and am now pleasantly warming my bones in Phoenix, AZ.

I am restless. These days life is mostly about my sweet boy, Jack – as it should be.

Thank you for reading!
