My writing has appeared in The Surfer's Journal, British Vogue, Vice, Primitive Skills, Saturdays Magazine, WAX, Modna, Surfing Life, Desillusion, Surfing World and others. I've contributed online writing and photos to Purple Fashion Magazine and others. Zines with my writing and photos are carried by Dashwood Books. I've been featured in Indoek. I worked previously as the editor of print magazines I-Mag and Surftime, in Bali, Indonesia.

I'm currently working to support the Red Bull Queen of the Bay, the first ever Women's Waimea Bay festival, as the Director of Content and Media. https://www.waimeabaychampionship.com/

I run sailing trips to remote nooks of the world looking for surf, exploration with women in mind. The project is called Full Moon Surf Sails. http://cargocollective.com/fullmoonsurfsails

Originally from Maine, I've worked as an outdoor guide and on commercial fishing boats.
