Hello. If you’ve made it here and you like to nerd out, read and write, you need a freelance writer, or an editor’s perspective, you’re in luck.
I’m a skilled writer and researcher with an editorial and marketing background and an eye for design. I love to connect readers with stories, whether they’re long-form features, books, or just a telling line about the people behind a business.
Though I’ll always be faithful to the print product (there’s nothing like cracking the spine of a well-made book or thumbing the glossy pages of a new magazine), I look ahead to the digital age by adding value to the printed word through social media, blogging, and coordinating with designers to create visually appealing copy.
About that copy: I like mine clean, concise, and with a punch. To that effect, I’ve written and edited everything from ads to poetry to articles to book-length works.
In my free time, I root for the Louisville Cardinals and Indiana Hoosiers, try not to cry about basketball, write poetry and creative nonfiction, work on my quilt, and hike. I also like to volunteer in education and literacy-promoting organizations.
