Everything and everyone has a story to tell.

I love figuring out the best and most appropriate narratives to develop for brands, products, and services – after all, stories are how we relate to one another in this grand thing we call life. I’m all about crafting content that emotionally resonates with whatever audience I’m writing for. Working collaboratively with other designers, writers, and strategists, I love using the power of language to help both inform and draw customers to a brand with engaging copy. So if you’ve got a story to tell, I’d love to hear it!

As a graduate from Marquette University with a bachelor’s degree in Journalism and a master’s degree in Media Studies from the University of Wisconsin: Milwaukee, I’m a passionate copywriter and strategist looking to push myself and further my skills in marketing, writing, advertising, and media production.
