About Me

I am a unique and multi-faceted writer with a broad background of experience. I have interviewed everyone from teachers to rock stars and know how to write sharp, professional ad copy just as well as I do poignant, engaging blog posts.

I have always had a vast variety of interests. This is why I have taken classes on a subjects including early childhood education, law, government, and film history.

In 2014, I was presented with an award for my work with Microsoft Advertising. I now divide my time freelancing for companies like Disney and Gonzaga University, while devoting myself to a nonprofit I created in 2018 that works to advance childhood literacy.
