I’m Rachel! Thanks for checking me out.
Before things get hot and heavy, let’s get to know each another.
First and foremost, I’m a writer. Born in Tulsa, Oklahoma, I developed an affinity for cowboy boots and cheese grits, but as young and restless souls are wont to do, I ventured West.
After attending Stanford University for undergrad, the place where I fell in love with the smell of eucalyptus groves and the sound of long sentences, I remained in Northern California’s Bay Area, which is now home. I live with my dog, Georgie, and a menagerie of houseplants in San Francisco.
You can find my writing in a number of places on the internet including The San Francisco Chronicle, The Atlantic.com, and Food52.com.
In addition to writing I enjoy making jewelry, painting, assembling collages, studying Italian, cooking, hiking, traveling, DJing, and reading.
For four years, I worked as the Creative Director at Clearly Kombucha, where I oversaw brand voice, marketing campaigns, and strategy.
I am currently pursuing an MFA in Creative Writing through UC Riverside’s Low Residency program as well as a Novel Writing Certificate through Stanford University’s Continuing Studies Department.

Hates: brunch, bowling, walking behind slow walkers, unprotected left turns, small talk aka “mingling,” poor grammar, and mostly brunch
