A great brand is like a human body.

Without organs and fat, our bodies would be a big pile of bones.
Without content, that's essentially what business would be -
especially in today's fast paced world.
My goal is to create and promote content so that websites have some "meat" on the bones of their brand.

Whether my role is social media manager, blogger, or content contributor, my aim is to learn as much about the subject matter
and become the voice of that brand.
Be it chasing the latest story from the hottest pop stars, or creating engaging content for a lighting company, I've done it all.
I'm always looking for new opportunities to learn
and new ways to grow in my ability to become the voice people turn to, as well as hone my own voice as a freelance contributing writer.
