Professional Experience

I have traveled from Barcelona to the Caribbean and all over the U.S. capturing stories. I am a versatile, deadline-oriented freelance writer and editor with over 10 years experience creating content for print/online publications, small businesses and visual artists. I am also a producer, director, playwright and screenwriter with experience in storyboarding and bringing stories to life onstage and behind the camera. I have extensive knowledge of current events, fashion, music, arts, pop culture and health topics. I love meeting new clients and assisting them in creating content that will take their business to the next level. As a director and manager, I enjoy mentoring writers and artists and conceptualizing editorial photo shoots. In addition to my copy and creative writing experience, I am a social media specialist and willing to relocate. Have laptop, will travel.
