Published Writing

I write about farming, business, food, and all that sprouts up from the soil.

Organic farming and growing food is often the backdrop of my writing, but it’s the experiences that challenge and carry and make us grow that I’m really interested in.  It’s the lessons that those experiences hold, and how we transform because of them.
