Writer in Portland, Oregon

Read my blog

I'm a writer, community builder, and parent of adults.

I've written several books, most recently, Parent Hacks: 134 Genius Shortcuts for Life With Kids (Workman Publishing, 2016), an illustrated collection of clever workarounds for new parents based on my award-winning, 10-year blog.

From 2016-2021, I was the co-host of the Edit Your Life podcast. My co-host, Christine Koh, continues to produce new episodes each week.

I live in Portland, Oregon with my family. I love the Pacific Northwest and feel lucky to call this part of the country my home.
