Professional/Personal Overview
  I am a creative, deadline driven writer and editor with more than 10 years of experience in marketing and publishing.
Recent experience includes social media marketing and copywriting in the eCommerce and events design production industries.

As Managing Editor for a local magazine, I was responsible for overseeing the entire production process, while adhering to strict deadlines. I hired and supervised a talented team of freelance writers, designers and photographers.

My commercial body of work includes numerous copy-writing assignments, ranging from corporate mission statements and web content to press releases, email marketing campaigns and social media management.

My passions include theater, dance, literature, travel and multi-cultural cuisine. Thanks to this eclectic disposition, I am available for a broad variety of projects.
