I’m a bi-peninsular Michiganian, born, raised and schooled in Detroit and at home in the Upper Peninsula at the Lake Michigan home we call Blue Skies.
My grandparents left Finland and Sweden for Michigan’s U.P., and my heritage shows in the sign at Blue Skies: Tervetuloa is Finnish for “welcome.”
I haven’t mastered the Finnish language but I am proud of my Sisu, which roughly translates to determination and perseverance—qualities that serve me well as a freelancer.
Here you can read about my background, see where my writing has appeared, check out a sampling of my photography, link to my blogs, learn how I can help you with your communication needs, and contact me with questions and assignments.
