I started my career as a small-town newspaper journalist at the Moscow-Pullman Daily News, covering city government, the local courts and human interest stories. While most of my freelance work is focused on marketing writing and strategic communications for higher education and nonprofits, I still love journalism — especially features about food, travel, science and culture.
I’m the editor of Project FARE, a nonprofit digital magazine that is passionate about food in Idaho and the complex interconnections that bring it to our tables. I work with writers and photographers across the state to bring fantastic features, business profiles, food guides and food news to our readers. I also edit our biweekly newsletter (sign up here!) and occasionally write stories for our website.
