I have over twenty years of creating, editing, and wordsmithing content for some of the most recognized brands and industries in the world. After receiving graduate degrees in English literature and screenwriting from the University of Washington and UCLA respectively, I worked as a tech editor and writer at Microsoft and Starbucks headquarters. During this time, I also published hundreds of online film and theatre reviews, as well as magazine articles on various travel destinations. In 2001, I returned to LA to work in the Creative group of Universal Studios Home Entertainment, and co-founded a copywriting company, Scarlet Letters Copywriting, in 2004. I have traveled extensively throughout the world, lived and breathed theatre in Scotland for as long as they would have me, exchanged emails with director Peter Jackson and Apprentice star Donald Trump (although not together), and gone hang-gliding in the Alps. I currently reside in Portland, Oregon, with two kids, three cats, one dog, and way too much moss.
