I'm Ashley, a writer and researcher based in Northern Nevada.

I completed my Master's in Literacy at the University of Nevada, Reno. Currently, I work for a software company called ShortStack and I'm the founder/editor of The New Artemis, a webzine about culture and philosophy for the modern adventurer. I'm also a contract writer for publications including GOOD and The Mary Sue, and I serve as an English instructor at Truckee Meadows Community College.

My passions are writing, research, travel and teaching, and I'm happiest when I find a way to bring these passions together. Above all, I believe in giving back to my community and to the world by contributing my skills whenever possible.

On a geeky level, I'm an avid reader, video gamer and ham radio enthusiast.

Please contact me if you're interested in collaborating! I'm available for freelance writing, editing, reporting and research.
