Let's Talk About How I Can Help You
I Write Professional Branded Content.
I Develop Compelling Creative Content.
I Tell Stories That Get People Talking.
I Help Businesses Grow.
I have a passion for the entire creative process, from brainstorming innovative ideas to creating content that gets people talking, sharing, and tweeting to implementing all aspects of a plan. I have experience working as a writer, editor, content manager, and social media guru who can attract the audience you deserve! In addition, I am skilled at Photoshop and website creation and management.
I began to recognize my interest in the creative world at an early age when I started writing stories about my pet guinea pigs that involved them having super powers and fighting evil hamsters. These stories were a big hit with family members and friends. I kept writing throughout elementary school and middle school. In high school, I wrote my first novel, a thriller, and I used it to get into New York University’s Dramatic Writing program.
While at NYU, in addition to taking just about every writing course you can imagine, I had a great opportunity to further explore my creativity. I took film classes, special effects makeup classes (I can turn you into a zombie for Halloween), and learned Photoshop and Final Cut Pro. I even took an Indian dance class to learn something new and because I wanted to have special dance moves to impress the ladies.
Since graduating, I’ve worked as a writer, editor, and content manager. I have written business pieces for Forbes, sports articles, patient education brochures, cookbooks, math textbook problems, and much, much more. I’ve gotten to further explore other creative mediums too, such as developing videos for martial arts studios and working with production companies. I’m not just interested in writing, but in the entire creative process.
