What I read

I mostly read non-fiction and biographies, as well as parenting and health blogs.

Side projects

I am an animal rescue social media writer in my spare time. I devote, on average, 6-8 hours a week to crafting clever Facebook posts that tug at the heartstrings of potential adopters and financial contributors.

Ideal team

I enjoy working in small, communicative teams. I'm versatile and can work in groups or independently.
