Hi! I’m Devon (pronounced Devin), a writer and independent journalist based in Portland, Ore. My writing has been featured in publications such as the L.A. Times, Teen Vogue, the Establishment, Grammarly, Mashable, The Startup, Business Insider, Forbes, 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. And I recently launched a publication on Medium dedicated to writing and mental health.
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. (Check out my Instagram account for TBR list and WIP updates, as well as thoughts on creativity and writing.)
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.) Be sure to follow me on Medium for upcoming posts about writing and the creative lifestyle. And check out my profile on LinkedIn or follow me on Twitter for real-time updates on my work.
