I became an avid reader at a young age, thanks to a combination of my mother's encouragement to read, the book availability provided by school and public libraries, and the rewards of Pizza Hut's Book It program. I never lost my love of reading, which mostly focused on non-fiction. In high school, I spent a year reading Shelby Foote's famous trilogy, The Civil War: A Narrative.

Since 2014, I have been Historian and Collections Manager for the Loxahatchee River Historical Society in Jupiter, Florida. I am also a Historian for the Florida Lighthouse Association.

I have a History B.A. from Florida Atlantic University. My specialties are lighthouse history, military history, and local history.
