Professional Experience

A diverse writer, editor and social media manager I'm more curious than Alice in Wonderland. I'm a stickler for accuracy and deadlines and believe in providing good copy. I've covered everything from the broad world of luxury lifestyle to celebrity news to underground construction. I can write about anything and adapt to any voice needed.
