I’m a reporter-turned-freelance writer based in Milwaukee. Storytelling is at the heart of what I do.
My professional writing career began in the small city of Wisconsin Rapids, where I landed my first post-graduate gig as a news reporter at the Wisconsin Rapids Daily Tribune. Since then, I’ve worked at the Wausau Daily Herald as the ‘Going Out’ reporter and the Milwaukee Business Journal as the retail, restaurant and banking reporter, where my contributions have earned awards from the Wisconsin Newspaper Association and the Milwaukee Press Club.
As a journalist, I’ve covered the education, entertainment and business sectors, specializing in stories on retail, banking, restaurants and technology. I’ve interviewed CEOs of Fortune 500 companies and various high-ranking political officials for articles, but many of the most impactful stories I’ve written have centered around charismatic small-town figures, like this local superhero pictured below.
I hold a bachelor’s degree in journalism from Marquette University’s Diedrich College of Communication. When I’m not writing, you’ll find me experimenting with a new curry recipe, reading memoirs or exploring the beautiful walking trails that weave throughout the Milwaukee metro area.
