Summary

I started my career in PR before making the move to editorial and content writing. I've worked both in-house and for major NYC agencies, but now live in Sydney, Australia where I continue to freelance while launching my own business.

Side projects

I am currently working on launching a business around the gap year. I'm in the process of building a community of students who are either interested in taking a gap year, or have already completed a gap year.

Ideal team

I like teams with an opinion that are excited and engaged in what they're doing. Micromanagement isn't my jam -- give me a task list and I'll get it done like a rockstar. My favorite clients are passionate about their roles and brimming with ideas.
