I’m a writer and editor based in San Francisco. Whether the task is to pen an op-ed, assist with a book, develop a new blog, or write video content, my goal is the same: to engage and inform audiences. I excel in writing compelling editorial content, communicating complex ideas clearly, and adapting my writing to match any media outlet, author, or brand.
My background is in journalism and copywriting. I was on the launch team as a staff reporter for Condé Nast Portfolio magazine and its website, Portfolio.com. I’ve also written for Forbes, AOL’s DailyFinance, Advertising Age, Coastal Living, the Hong Kong Bureau of the Associated Press, South Carolina’s Spartanburg Herald-Journal, Newsday, Time Out Chicago, the professional truck driver’s magazine Road King, Sophisticate’s Black Hair Styles and Care Guide, Complete Woman and North Shore magazine. Before jumping into journalism, I wrote TV commercials and other types of ads for brands including Red Lobster, Summer’s Eve and Orville Redenbacher.
More recently, I have enjoyed assisting in the writing, editing, and researching of the book Users, Not Customers by Aaron Shapiro, CEO of digital agency HUGE. I have also assisted in the development of articles published in McKinsey Quarterly, Financial Times, USA Today, Fast Company, Digiday, Advertising Age, Adweek, as well as many other publications. I have also taught an op-ed writing workshop for the Human Rights Advocates Program of the Institute for the Study of Human Rights at Columbia University.
In my spare time, I write fiction, grow veggies, and hike. I live in San Francisco with my husband, son and two cats.
