About Me

When I first stepped foot in the U.S., I could barely piece a sentence together in English. Today, I get paid by publications and companies to tell stories in it. I am interested in crafting narratives for unique companies and individuals. 

As a journalist, I have been published in The Wall Street Journal, USA Today, L.A. Business Journal, Mediabistro and more. Much of my past work has been in business news topics such as finance, retail, media, technology and startups. I can research complex subjects and synthesize blocks of jargon into human-speak with ease. I am able to turn over clean, concise copy under deadline pressures. I also have experience editing and improving copy. I am currently based in Los Angeles, Calif. and available to work remotely.
