About Me

I’m a freelance content writer whose work has been featured on Salon, the Huffington Post, Entrepreneur Magazine, Newsweek, Verywell Health and Verywell Fit, the Chicago Tribune and Tech Crunch. I have extensive experience in affiliate marketing content, buying guides, product descriptions and product recommendations. My journalism background also makes me a strong researcher, proofreader and editor for blogs, newsletters and online buying guides. 

In addition, I’m an award-winning, Second City-trained comedy sketch writer. I have experience writing for both live theatre and video, constructing timely late night monologue jokes and crafting biting satirical news clips.

When I'm not writing, I love performing standup comedy, competing at trivia nights and filming mini stop motion movies.
