Copywriter

Location icon United States of America

In the second grade my mother came home with a Windows 98 desktop, that was the moment I fell in love with the internet. I'm a natural creative with a 'data beats opinion' mentality. Over the years, I've been fortunate to turn my natural talent of content regurgitation into a career that I'm insanely passionate about.

I have 4 years of experience in marketing along with 1 year in copywriting. I currently freelance for Elite Daily, xoJane, along with various publications. I am currently taking on new freelance projects.

I remember attending College T-shirt Day in middle school. It was a day full of information, inspiration, and you guessed it -- a free college t-shirt at random. Events like this inspired me to obtain a college degree. I was even inspired to crave a masters diploma and to become a PHD candidate.
