I have over 5 years of experience as a writer and editor in digital media marketing and brand curation. I’m organization-obsessed and I keep a color coded calendar for everything. I have strong feelings about the semicolon, and I amuse myself by finding misplaced apostrophes.

I believe we should make language work for us. It's how we use words that tells a reader what they mean. It's the placement of punctuation that makes them feel where to give pause, where to stop, and makes them want to go on. The emotions elicited by well-placed words are the reason I write. I’m great at finding your brand’s unique voice, and using it to speak to your audience.

I'm an acrobat, dog-person, and defender of the Oxford comma. A recent transplant from Buffalo, NY, I'm putting down roots and growing my practice in New York City.

I'm available for full-time, part-time, and contract work.

Thank you to The Bird's Nest Circus Arts, The W Spa, Glenn E. Murray, and the photographers at Unsplash for the images I've used here.

Description begins in the writer's imagination, but should finish in the reader's.
