About Me

I am an experienced e-commerce and digital marketing writer. My work is driven by hard metrics and creative aesthetics. I have supported both agency and private brand teams. With my adaptive writing style, I deliver consistently on-brand copy for a variety of stakeholders and projects.

I'm currently working full-time remote while traveling the U.S. in a 40-foot RV
