Hi! I’m Devon (pronounced Devin), a writer and independent journalist based in the San Francisco Bay Area. My writing has been featured in publications such as the L.A. Times, Teen Vogue, the Establishment, Mashable, Business Insider, MarketWatch, CNBC and USA Today, among others.And my essay “There and Back, Again” was selected as a finalist in the 2018 Parks and Points Fall Essay Contest.
A lot of my work centers around money and the relationship between culture and language — though I’ve written about many other things in my time as a freelancer. I also love to explore topics like identity, nature, and mental health in my essays.
I have a Bachelor’s degree in journalism (magazine track) from Boston University. And I started a self-designed/directed MFA at the end of January (you can follow my progress and check out my reading list here.)
When I’m not writing (or updating my many, many spreadsheets), I can usually be found hanging out with my dog, planning my next solo-hiking adventure, or trying to get through my ever-expanding list of must-read books.
Feel free to email me with any questions or proposals you have. (I’m always happy to talk about writing/money/sci-fi/film scores/bad 80’s movies.) And check out my profile on LinkedIn or follow me on Twitter for real-time updates on my work.
