GHOSTWRITER
I'm an academically trained writer and researcher specializing in ghostwriting book-length novels, memoirs, and biographies.

I'm passionate about activating personal histories of trailblazers, artists, and entrepreneurs whose experiences offer a unique story to tell a broad audience. I have conducted hundreds of hours of archival research as well as thousands of pages of oral histories which I use to write books for my clients. I am passionate about telling people’s stories in a way that is compelling and authentic.

As a published author, I have been commissioned to write essays on art/literary criticism, cultural theory, psychology, and subcultural histories. I have also published a book of poetry, a chapbook of short stories, and my third book, Imperial Physique, came out in 2019. I am currently researching and writing an experimental biography of underground fashion designer and drag performer Mr. David Glamamore.
