Nice to meet you.


Thanks for coming along with us.

I write and edit my words and other people's words. I'm also the co-founder of Forth Chicago, a community for creative women entrepreneurs.

My husband is a front-end web developer. We both work as independent creatives and raise our copper-topped kiddo from our Oak Park home. 

We seek out magic around the corner and around the globe. Oftentimes, it's making working for ourselves work for our little crew. Sometimes it looks like a working sabbatical, where we balance living like a local someplace new while parenting and working. This year: CAPE TOWN
