I am a graduate with a BA in English and have accumulated experience with writing and communications through a combination of professional positions, courses, internships, and volunteer positions. My current position is as a copywriter for ICM Corporation where I write copy for email newsletters, entries for multiple blogs, content for the website, and more. I am currently on the staff of an online game, where I am not only responsible for writing and creating content but also for helping to edit work of other contributors. My internship with Cream City Review gave me experience composing professional emails, newsletters, and guides, as well as handling inventory, acquisitions, and outreach.

In addition, I am currently working on a novel that has been in the works for several years. My focus in college was creative writing, and I have done a large variety of stories.
