Welcome to my little corner of the internet.
My name is Lindy. Writing is my creative outlet, passion and the way I make a living.
Creating content for Zillow Group is my day job and I love it. I also provide content marketing and copywriting services to small businesses and boutique marketing agencies on a freelance basis.
I would be happy to talk with you about a project you could use my help on. You can learn more about that here.
I am an MFA student at Oregon State University – Cascades.
My creative writing usually focuses heavily on the stories, history and culture of a certain place. I am interested in:
The ways that place shapes personal identity
Why we are drawn to certain places and why those places vary from person to person
Micro communities and cultures in the United States
Travel writing with a narrative grounded in oral and documented history
Some fun facts about me:
Oregon is home. Tall pines and cloudy skies make me feel at home. Naturally, the Pacific Northwest environment suits me well.
I try to get out and explore and see new places as often as possible. If not on my own, then with my husband, Mike, and our dog, Phil Collins at my side. Occasionally we even bring along our cat, Stevie Nicks.
Nature plays a significant role in my life. It is a source of calm and connection in a world that often feels chaotic. Recently, I have become more vocal and take any opportunity I can to advocate for the preservation of open spaces and small scale agricultural practices. My family is currently working on a project to create a community revolving around these ideas on old family farm land in Northern Utah.
When I’m not writing or out wandering in the woods, I can typically be found curled up with a book, binging on podcasts or online news feeds, attempting to be a yogi, or trying to reconnect with my Scandinavian roots through the art of baking.
Feel free to contact me with questions or collaboration inquiries. I would love to chat.
