Originally from Southern California, I moved to Old Lyme, CT when I was in middle school, and since then have been “bicoastal,” essentially living in either California or the Northeast at any given time. I studied at Cornell University and Connecticut College, graduated with a B.A. in Writing and Social Theory from New York University, and earned an M.A. in Public Affairs and Practical Politics from the University of San Francisco.

Communications and storytelling on behalf of great causes and organizations is my professional passion, and has led to a diverse array of experiences. I’ve worked as a reporter for outlets including the New York Observer; as a communications director for political candidates and issue advocacy groups; and as an educator and performer, including for Mystic Seaport. I’ve also been heavily involved in the arts as an actor, singer, director, and writer.

Since joining the Episcopal Church in 2015, I have searched for a way to merge my spiritual enthusiasm and vocational interests, and am grateful for the opportunity to do exactly that for the St. Stephen’s faith community.

I currently live in New London with Caryn, my girlfriend of six years, and our three wonderful, absurd cats, Timmy, Tommy, and Bella.
