My life revolves around boats and writing. My love of literature led me to pursue my BA in English at Colby College, graduating cum laude and with Honors in 2009. Meanwhile, my passion for sailing has brought about many hours—and jobs—on yachts in the Northeast, culminating in earning my 50 ton captain’s license. In May 2012, I received my MFA in Creative Writing with a concentration in Poetry at the New School in New York City.
After receiving my MFA I was able to combine my love of the water with creative expressions through various positions in social media and marketing content development in the marine industry.
Since the fall of 2016, I have been pursuing my PhD in English and Creative Writing at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee. I maintain my connection to the sailing community through freelancing and seasonal work.
