Once, I studied English in the near the cornfields of Iowa while negotiating a series of intricate sleeping schedules and struggling to find the nearest barista.

Now, I work as a writer in the cornfield-adjacent city of Omaha, Nebraska, and I am my own barista.

Here you’ll find information about the creative work I’ve done and am doing, as well as my freelance writing portfolio. The portfolio contains articles and blog posts I’ve written on a variety of topics. I’m always excited to learn about new fields while taking on new projects.

Thank you for your time.

 

Words

 

  • You can find my professional writing on Looper and SVG, where I cover movies, TV, video games, and whatever drama Twitch has summoned up from the depths of the human psyche this month.

 

  • I am currently (in theory) seeking representation for one novel:

Midnight in a Cold Shower

While his best friends Felicia and Mary are planning their wedding, Andrew is sleeping walking through his quarter-life crisis. Literally. Andrew spends his days behind the counter of Yorke’s last video rental store, dreaming up screenplays and plans of escape from his home town, but when a series of mysterious deaths rolls through Andrew’s neighborhood, he finds a new reason – or compulsion – to stay. With the help of a psychic violin prodigy, a mad scientist, and the ghost living at his local Waffle House Andrew might be able to put an end to the murders and his own ennui.

 

  • And I am hard at work (also in theory) on my next project:

In Between Endings

Lucy Lee has just as many problems as any twenty-three year old with a passion for life. She’s worried that her job is sucking her soul. She’s figuring out whether she’s more in love with her best friend Makenna or her band’s guitarist Ian. Oh, and she’s got to keep up a grueling daily ritual routine and wreak nightly havoc on her liver just to prevent a cosmic death god from whispering it’s plans for the apocalypse into her ear. Back when Lucy was sixteen, she thought practicing magick was pretty cool, but now it’s old hat, and she’s tired. Unfortunately, a late night text from her ex is about to unleash a shitstorm of magickal chaos and set Lucy and her friends up for a confrontation with a billionaire cult leader.

Music

DryCampus was a recording studio nestled in an attic in Iowa City.

Started in 2016 as a collaboration between two artists, DryCampus was a project geared at getting more musical voices out into the world and encouraging collaboration between local artists.

DryCampus is currently on indefinite hiatus, but the music we put together over the course of two years is still available online.

You can check out all of DryCampus’s releases on its bandcamp page.
