What I read

I love reading poetry! I also love fashion blogs such as Les Anti-Modernes and Into-Mind. Lately, I've been trying to read more blogs that focus on marketing and social media news.

Side projects

I ran social media for The Honors Herald and Loch Norse Magazine, both undergraduate publications. I helped edit a newsletter that went out to honors students at my undergraduate institution.

Ideal team

I'd prefer to work with a small team. I do well with clients who enjoy developing ideas together but I'm also fine with being given an idea and executing it.
