Professional Experience

I'm a freelance writer and creative strategist, providing content for culture and lifestyle sites, as well as content, branding and social strategies for personal and professional brands. I take an anthropological approach to writing, using every topic as an opportunity to explore culture and investigate the architecture of how we exist and identify ourselves within our personal and collective histories. Whether applied to editorial or small business content, this method creates a deep level of connection with readers, as it blends hard data with the emotions that drive people to connect with the world around them.
