I’m a writer. But I’ve also worked as an editor in chief at one of the world’s biggest and most widely read publishers of women’s magazines. I’m an advertising refugee (copywriter) with experience working on some of the biggest and best brands in the world at agencies all over it, and I’m a social media junkie. I’d love the opportunity to pitch you an idea, write or edit something for you, and then promote the devil out of it on all things digitally social. I’ve worked in the digital publishing space for sixteen years – almost as long as Al Gore, the inventor of the Internet.
I have experience writing and editing in all areas of women’s lifestyle content, but I write (and think) most often about travel, food, relationships, and fitness, particularly yoga.
If you put a gun to my head (but please don’t do that; it’s really unnecessary), I’d say that outside of being a writer with a predictable addiction to books, I identify most with being a devoted Bikram yogi, a college basketball junkie (Kentucky, baby!), a Southerner, a surfin’ wanna-be, an avid baker of sweets, a lover of too-precious, artsy foreign films and ridiculously ginormous blockbusters, and a connoisseur of burritos, salsa, and spicy tuna rolls. My friends say I’m hilarious, but they don’t get out much.
A few samples of my work are below; you can also check me out over at LinkedIn. I look forward to working together, or at the very least, enjoying an overpriced coffee and a fancy pastry of some sort.
Advertising portfolio coming soon, but if you’d like to take a peek before it’s published here, please email me at email@example.com.
