Professional Experience

A fresh and creative freelancer, I've spent my career writing in all forms for others. From an expert bylined piece on how to create the best corporate culture to copy for a supplemental education website from "head to toe," I've written it. Now focusing on branching out on my own, it's time to let my way with words shine. As a world traveler I offer unique perspective.
