About Me

Hi there! 👋🏼

Based in the SF Bay Area, I've been writing my way through B2B tech for 4 years. I'm passionate about creating high quality, user centric content that delivers tangible results.

By day, I focus on content strategy and production at HackerRank. But when I'm not at my desk, you'll find me spending time with my Jack Russell, playing video games on one of my many consoles, or spending time by the beach at my home in Santa Cruz.
