"World of Work" Freelance Writer

About Me

I've spent every single holiday dinner for the past six years or so trying to help my extended relatives understand the basics of what I do for a living. Some of my favorite summaries so far have been:

"You're a blogger."
"You put stuff on the internet."
"You're a writer but not, like, books."

Sort of...but not quite.

Here's the gist: I'm a full-time freelance writer who specializes in creating long-form online content (primarily, blog posts and ebooks) for software clients in the careers, human resources, productivity, project management, and business ownership spaces.

Some of my past and current clients include Trello, Loom, Atlassian, Wrike, GoSkills, QuickBooks, The Muse, Toggl, Miro, Hubstaff, Culture Amp, and more. Plus, my work has been published and/or syndicated by The New York Times, Forbes, Fast Company, Inc., Business Insider, TIME, Mashable, and LifeHacker, to name just a few.

Not bad for a "blogger," right?
