Professional/Personal Overview
  I am a creative writer with years of experience as a copywriter and editor at marketing agencies in New York City. I also work frequently for popular consumer magazines, as well as on campaigns for major corporate clients. I love to travel, and last summer, I worked as the foreign editor at a magazine in China. I also write nonfiction essays and host a reading series in Manhattan. While I have strong creative tendencies, I also have an eye for detail is rare among "creative types." I value efficiency, I thrive on clear communication, and I am dedicated to getting the job done right.

Work Samples
(Building Markets, 5/3/2013)
I worked as copywriter on two documents. One was a detailed business proposal detailing the financial particulars of their latest program. The other was a brochure that briefly introduced the program to prospective clients. I also hired the graphic designer who worked with me on the project.
