“Netflix for Geeks: Underrated Sci-Fi Shows,” EAT.GEEK.PLAY, April 2014

A fun project that allowed me to write about one of my favorite things… science fiction!

“A Homebrewer’s Dream Come True,” Craft Beer Magazine, June 2014

Published in an iTunes-exclusive magazine, this article features a local homebrewer-turned-microbrewery.

Article Excerpt: “Many of us dream of one day opening up our own breweries. As of May of 2014, 32 breweries are planning to open in San Diego County, and that’s on top of the 88 operational brew houses already open, according to the San Diego beer publication West Coaster.”

I tend towards the fun and absurd and have the most fun with projects that involve passionate people. Whether they're starting a new handmade apparel site or running a record label, I feel a special kinship with those who are involved in the DIY scene. I love craft beer and music, and educate myself daily on human rights, mental health, and sustainability issues. In my free time, I play the ukulele, publish a bi-weekly music and interview podcast, pine over cute dogs on animal rescue sites, and watch and read a lot of science fiction.

Articles & Features

I'm drawn to social issues, from the less-serious (the arts, music) to the-world-sucks (mental health, civil rights). My articles have been published in Craft Beer Magazine and The Plaid Zebra. You can also find my blog posts at different blogs like Creative Edge Music, eat.drink.craft., and Villains Records.

Creative Nonfiction & Poetry

Most recently, I've written about my continued experiences with major depression in my self-published zine It's Like This, Not That (both issues at my shop). You can also view some of my creative nonfiction on my personal blog, eat.drink.craft.

Music Reviews & Biographies

I love meeting people who are passionate about their craft. This has led me to interviews with artists and musicians, blog posts on Creative Edge Music, and creating biographies for local bands. You can read some of my interviews on Villains Records, eat.drink.craft, and the Handmade Holiday blog.

Web Content & Blog Posts

When it comes to your business website, you need engaging content that clearly conveys your core values and services. Friendly, succinct, yet informational, my web content sets you apart from other competitors.
