Welcome to my world!  Growing up, my closest friends always called me “Lo.”  That’s why I playfully refer to my world as the “Lo Life.”  Lo Life refers to living my best, creative life, where the arts come first.  I am an author, columnist, screenwriter, actress, and content creator.  I both practice and promote the arts.  I believe in producing wonderful things and helping others in this realm build the platforms that help them to do the same!

I was born in Asheville, NC, which is the Southern artistic Mecca.  I then spent many years in one of the most aesthetically pleasing places in the US, Charleston, SC.  I recently made the decision to relocate to the Los Angeles area, where I can still surround myself by beaches and palm trees, but also capitalize on all of the opportunities for me in the artistic hub of America.

I was first published in 2017 by Pen Name Publishing, when my novel Tobacco Sun was picked up.  I was also published in a few literary anthologies, and online forums that year.  In 2019 I was awarded my own column in Skirt Magazine, and landed my first professional acting roles.  I started my own creative marketing company prior to all of this in 2015, and still take on select clients, where I specialize in branding, image, blogging, social media, video scripting, and more.  I also coach other authors, actors, and aspiring influencers when I am not working on my own projects!

If you’re a creative “Lo Lifer” like I am, I encourage you to follow along the journey.  Check out the media here on the site, follow me on social media, and find out what I’m all about!  Follow just for fun and ideas, or learn how to hire me to help you build your fabulous world!
