About Me

Hi, there!

I'm a freelance writer and business owner with over a decade of experience in content marketing. I've written hundreds of articles covering a wide span of topics, from commercial building design to sexual wellness to B2B marketing. 

I love high-quality content that delivers insight and value. I've worked with and for marketing agencies, small businesses, and startups and offer a number of different writing and editing services. At this stage in my career, I’ve completed thousands of blog posts, dozens of newsletters, a couple of books, and countless pages of website copy. 

I can provide additional examples of my work upon request: a good deal of my writing is done without a byline, but I also have a blog and Medium profile that you can check out to get a feel for my expertise. 

You can find out more about me on my website: https://makeshiftmuse.com/
