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’ve recently pivoted to writing more generally, with a focus on Medium and their world of publications. Connect with me here!
