My goal is to work with words in any capacity, if it be editing, proofing, reshaping, inventing, or deleting. Online or off, I love lifestyle writing – from culture to retail. I can freestyle and riff or I can stay structured and detailed. I’ve freelanced with websites to promote their product and brand through word choice, both precise and creative. I’ve built online newsletters, blogged, and written short stories.
I’ve also spent five years working as a product manager for two major ecommerce sites, and learned the intricacies of building a product with a team of designers, developers, sales and clients. I work well with a team but I’m also autonomous; both are necessary for a well-rounded foundation.
From 2013-2015, I focused my efforts on founding and running The Writing Club, a creative writing program for elementary students in San Francisco. I wrote the curriculum, built the lesson plans, and taught more than fifty students over two years. The education sphere is compelling and soul-satisfying.
Three years ago I relocated from San Francisco to Los Angeles with my family. I relocated The Writing Club to LA, and taught in three public and private schools over my first year. Since mid 2017, I’ve been ghostwriting for The Sweet Nerd, a baking blog, and managing some of the social media marketing.
I have an MFA in Writing from the University of San Francisco, and a B.A. in Journalism from the University of Oregon.
