I am a Pittsburgh-based freelance writer who is intrigued by the extraordinary, attracted to quirk. I've researched everything from cycling abandoned superhighways to bread baking with equal enthusiasm. My work, covering anything from green home renovations to cupcake contests to urban coyotes, has appeared in Bust, Parents, and is forthcoming in Psychology Today.
My initiation into parenthood inspired a rebirth in my writing. I aspire to give voice to every gritty aspect of birth and mothering--all of it from breastfeeding to behemoth nursing bras to VBACtivism and cloth diapering snafus. I blog regularly for A Mother's Boutique at Mommy News and Views.
