WRITING

As a writer and copyeditor, my job is to help my clients say what they want to say — and to convince people to listen. In a world of infinite newsfeeds, it takes great writing to convince a reader to click rather than keep scrolling. My priority is to write attention-grabbing articles, create branded content that expresses a company’s unique personality, and tell stories in ways algorithms will never be able to.

For samples of my writing, please see below.
