First-time visitor? Welcome.

Thank you for stopping by.

I started this blog to share my professional writing. But soon that felt limiting — because I write for my own pleasure too, and also enjoy taking photos.

So while many of the posts now feature my personal interests and projects, I hope they’ll still convey my passion for storytelling and my dedication to saying things well.
