Content Writer specializing in Arts and Entertainment, Food, and Wellness | Copywriter for Small Businesses

About Me

I’m a content writer on a mission to translate complex ideas–even the boring ones–into words that educate and entertain. 

Through writing well-researched feature articles for online publications and conversion-focused web content, I help busy people and businesses create deeply engaging reads. Because I know that the written word holds great power to influence and inspire. 

I have written case studies and sales-focused website copy for small businesses. Currently I'm writing for an arts and entertainment publication and several culinary websites. I'm a certified Qigong instructor and gravitate toward health and wellness companies and writing topics as well. Coming from a 20-year background as a chef in various capacities, I specialize in writing for the food and hospitality industries. 

I love doing interviews, pitching ideas, and diving into research. I'm experienced with tweaking articles to match a brand's voice and speak to a target market. As your writer, you can depend on me to be proactive in communication, meet deadlines with time to spare, and utilize all feedback to make sure I’m producing consistent, high-quality work.
