Hi, I’m Jen: a writer, artist, teacher, & consulting creative.
It may sound like a cliché, but I have always considered myself a creative person.
I spent my childhood as an “indoor kid” drawing pictures and telling stories. As a young adult, I honed my creative writing skills in workshops on craft: novels, short stories, and screenplays.
Later, I earned a master’s degree in creative writing and taught English composition for a few years. Then I switched gears to work in content marketing: at agencies, on in-house teams, and running my own business as a freelancer.
Today, I live in Rochester, New York, with my husband Joe and our adorably ferocious cat Charlie. In my spare time, I’m a fiction writer, tarot card reader, artist, and amateur photographer. (Yes, all the photos on the site are mine!)
What is a “consulting creative”?
Sherlock Holmes called himself a consulting detective; he saw the world in a different way to solve the unsolvable. I call myself a consulting creative because I’m here to help you look at your creativity in a brand new way.
Creativity is for everyone. Yes, that means you! Contrary to popular belief, it doesn’t take a special type of person to make things. We all have that “magic” inside of us.
