About Me

I'm a 26-year-old writer and photographer based in Philadelphia. I've written articles, blog posts, emails, and more! As well, I've worked across industries, as both a hired marketer and as a freelancer. Growing up in a small business family, I became interested in finance, marketing, and economics at a young age. I later moved to Montreal, Canada to attend McGill University, where I completed a double major in Political Science & History. At McGill I learned about the world while also leading research teams, and working as an essay tutor. It so happens that I also ran the business school's newspaper. 

Since graduating I've traveled, and worked various jobs: as a content writer, camp counselor, retail store manager, consultant, marketer, tour guide, teacher, parks & rec attendant, union organizer, and photographer. My myriad experiences have been eye-opening, and helped me build a sizable writing portfolio of personal, and professional work. You can see my full clippings here:

One important thing you should know: just because I haven't written about something before, doesn't mean I can't. I like a challenge, and I can research anything.
