Professional/Personal Overview
  Currently writing lifestyle & industry pieces for magazines and corporate clients–LinkedIn and U of Phoenix–and handling social media for a non-profit, I revel in spinning complex ideas about education, climate, careers and tech into engaging stories. From penning an original pop-quiz to writing an infographic celebrating our nation's parks, I deliver out-of-the-box, thought provoking content that you won’t find elsewhere. Experienced in SEO best practices, incl. keywords, metatags, titletags, and the like, two of my pieces won Marcom gold awards in 2013, and I received a Platinum Hermes Creative Award in 2014. I am writing video scripts for McGuire real estate and managing an environmental app. I can pull stories out of anyone with a mouth, and have interviewed celebrities like Chris Rock for Rolling Stone, but can also write a stunning profile of your CEO. I’m comfortable researching news topic & will happily deliver concise inspired prose way ahead of deadline. Try me.
