Hello. If you’ve made it here and you like to nerd out and you need a freelance writer or an editor’s perspective, you’re in luck.
Asking the right questions helps me transform jargon, data and interviews into accurate, easy-to-understand, fun-to-read copy.
About that copy: I like mine clean, concise, and with a punch. (I like plain language, but I’m no Plain Jane.)
I’m a skilled writer and content creator with an editorial and marketing background and an eye for design. I love to connect readers with stories–whether they’re long-form features, proposals, or just a telling line about the people behind a business.
My newest (and therefore pet) project is producing Story of My Life, a podcast that asks interesting guests over 70 how they came to be who they are and where they are.
Samuel Taylor Coleridge defined prose as “words in their best order” and poetry as “the best words in their best order.” I strive for the latter in everything I write. I hold degrees in journalism and poetry.
