About Me

NPR called me “a modern day Jack Kerouac,” which is not true. I am neither so well published, nor as drunk. I did, however, convince a group of friends to routinely skip recess to help me handwrite a chapter book about dogs, alien planets, and an evil witch.

After I graduated with a writing major and Calvin University’s highest award for creative writing, I hitchhiked for two months across 6,700 miles. I blogged about the experience, found myself on NPR, and gave a slew of small-scale talks across the country.

In my professional life, I build websites as the owner of Branded Look and direct communications at St. Luke Episcopal Church. I also founded and edited the post calvin, an online journal/blog for young alumni writers.
