hey y’all!

I’m Elijah! I’m a digital branding professional and writer from the U.S. South with experience in digital media, web design, and political communications. When I’m not working on my writing or helping get good people elected to office, you can often find me honing my baking skills, working through my massive to-read pile, or roaming Greensboro with my DSLR.

Currently, I’m working on revising my first novel, Nor Gloom of Night, an irreverent sci-fi romp about an interplanetary mailman in the 23rd century whose cargo turns out to be more than meets the eye.
