Writer, blogger, and proofreader ready to breathe life into your work.

Greetings! Welcome to my portfolio! A little about me:

I have a B.A in English and eight years of experience in teaching the subject to high schoolers. During this time, I have utilized my expertise through teaching students the art of storytelling and the conventions of grammar and mechanics.

Although creative writing is my first love, I am also accomplished in technical writing as I have authored official education documents (including school redesign proposals and parent-school compacts).

I am proficient in writing styles including AP, APA, and MLA and have helped others master the style rules as well.

Simultaneously, I have completed the following: part-time freelance writing and writing blog copy. My freelance work includes résumé and cover letter writing, bios, reality television show pitches, and academic papers; I have a passion for helping others communicate their messages clearly and concisely. Additionally, I have been producing compelling content for my blog.

You will find that I am timely when producing work, serious about creating compelling content, and decidedly worth it.

Who's Afraid of an Image?

I loathe having my picture taken. Other people like to take those up-close and personal, right-in-your-face, show every imperfection type pictures of me. And when that person has authority over what happens with said pictures, I become irked. I figured out a long time ago that people post pictures on social media as long as...
