About Me

I am an accomplished writer and editor living in New Jersey, with 10+ years of experience writing about travel, editing, and tea. Because you should be more than a click in a sea of clicks, I make it my mission to create content that will be remembered and returned to. 

My goal for your articles? To have people share them on the most popular subreddits to drive traffic to your website!

* What have you been up to in the last five years? *

A lot! I have lived and traveled across France, Canada, India, and the U.S. I have worked, and continue to work, for clients such as Hachette, TC Média, EveryMundo, Princeton University, and Reedsy. And I have written short stories that have been published in highly-respected magazines; one of those stories was even nominated for the Grand Prix de l’Imaginaire, France’s biggest speculative fiction award!

* What are your strengths? *

You know as well as I do that millennials are getting tired of seeing the same posts over and over on social media. They are starving for unique content, one that shows a distinct personality. In other words, they want to connect to the person behind the screen. I write friendly, high quality content that resonates with them and leaves an impression.

So, let’s do that. Let’s talk about it. Let’s talk about coping with anxiety, and coping with writing anxiety, as those two tend to overlap.

Sightseeing in Princeton, New Jersey

Nested between Washington and New York, the town of Princeton, New Jersey, is often dismissed by travelers in favor of more famous East Coast destinations. In fact, Princeton is a great stopover between Washington and New York and has a lot of offer, from historical tours to fine dining and outdoors experiences. Without any hesitation, Princeton University is the best thing to see in Princeton, New Jersey. The campus is overflowing with historical sights, from its oldest building, Nassau Hall..
