I am a Chicago native and lifelong Midwesterner. A consulting actuary turned mathematics educator, I began writing my own curriculum materials and eventually started writing full-time. My most recent contract included the design and creation of Advanced Placement Statistics instructional and assessment materials for an on-line K-12 content provider.

As part of my continuing professional education, I obtained a Certificate in Writing from UC Berkeley Extension and a Certification in DSLR Photography from Michigan State University. I am a member of Write616, Michigan Writers, The Poetry Society of Michigan, and the Holland Area Arts Council.

Other professional skills include quantitative data analysis, qualitative research, demographic analysis, and digital photography. I also work extensively with Adobe Creative Cloud.
