Professional/Personal Overview
  Currently writing both lifestyle and business pieces for corporate clients, LinkedIn and University of Phoenix, I revel in spinning complex ideas about education, science, careers and business into engaging stories. From penning an original pop-quiz to writing an infographic celebrating our nation's parks, I can deliver out of the box, thought provoking content, that you won’t find elsewhere. Heavily trained in SEO best practices, including keywords, metatags, titletags, and the like, two of my pieces won Marcom gold awards in 2013, and I just recieved a Platinum Hermes Creative Award in 2014. I am writing video scripts for McGuire real estate on the side 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 any new topic and will happily deliver concise inspired prose, way ahead of deadline. Try me.
