Articles & Ghostwriting
As a content writer and copy editor, I have government agency, law firm, and startup experience. I'm skilled in writing for a wide range of formats, including blog posts, email newsletters, landing page copy, slideshows, AP-style articles, marketing material, social media content, humor pieces, film reviews, and TV recaps.
The feature-length screenplay I co-wrote with Elise D'Haene and Jessica Spencer, titled Beaver, Las Vegas, won the Film Daily Screenwriter’s Prize Comedy Feature Award, was a Finalist in WeScreenplay’s Diverse Voices competition, and a ScreenCraft Comedy Screenplay Quarter-Finalist.
Most recently, I wrote a Fleabag spec script with Alexis Pazmiño. Our short film, M for Maritza, won the Television, Internet & Video Association of DC Peer Awards Student Production: Fiction (Bronze) award and was a Semi-Finalist at the Nassau Film Festival and the San Mauro Film Festival. Our screenplay, Otter vs. Shark, won the GO Independent International Film Festival (DC) award for Best Dark Comedy Under 20 Pages and was an Official Selection for the Oaxaca International FilmFest and Skyline Indie Film Fest.
My writing has been featured by Reductress, Romper, and The Stir.
