I am a creative strategist, a writer, and a lover of chocolate. I love working with new clients and discovering the best way to communicate with their target audience. Although I'm a writer, I am also artistic, which means I can cast creative vision and make it happen. I work with designers and developers when needed to create a dynamic and powerful message to consumers. I have a degree in Advertising and English, and I've had 10 years of experience working in industries across the board in all types of media. I am looking for clients who truly desire creative work and are willing to stand apart from their competitors.
