I am the co-founder and managing editor at Night Owls Press, a small, independent book publisher based in Portland, OR, and San Francisco, CA that turns big ideas into great books. Books published under our imprint include: The Fifth Age of Work, Small Business Big Change, The Editor's Eye, Home Field Advantage, and Working in the UnOffice (co-authored). Our latest project is Turn of Phrase ESL, an educational series that teaches English language idioms in the form of interactive, chooseable path novels (think Choose Your Own Adventure).

In previous lives, I have worn many hats: corporate communications guru, impassioned economic development professional, fearless field researcher. I have traveled to over 15 countries in Asia and Latin America and was a bona fide expat for five years. I am a bit of a nomad but really have a homebody soul.

I write when I can carve out the time. One day I'm hoping to bust out a novel, something that exists in the borderlands of literary and speculative fiction. A good day is 500 words, a book, a cat, strong coffee, the smells of cinnamon or spruce when it is cold, mint or lemon balm when it is warm, and a brisk walk in the woods. I currently live in Portland, OR.

Say hi! I am always looking for creative partnerships in publishing or writing.
