Writing

As seen in_

I like to write about all kinds of things, but since becoming antiquated with the publication Leafly in mid-2019, most of my published writing has filed under wellness – exploring the fascinating realm of cannabis and how it affects our bodies and lives.

I’m working on shifting my income to a more standard kinda gig, which hopefully will allow me to start collecting bylines and writing more generally again; so be sure to check back for more variety in coming months.
