The long version:
I’ve spent my entire career as a writer, moving from journalism to content marketing and copywriting. I specialize in long-form copy (love doing research and finding a narrative!) and, oddly enough, microcopy and writing for UX. I guess I just like the extremes.
My skills are built on a foundation of editorial expertise in proofreading, copyediting and fact-checking, a result of working for a newspaper with extremely high standards. (I still remember some stinging comments about the difference between that and which.) I’ll never mix up tenant and tenet, and I can spot a misplaced modifier at ten paces.
I’ve authored a book, told stories on stage, been on the radio, and wrote my master’s thesis about Twitter. Whether writing an error message or a case study, I bring a focus on clear communication and an understanding of the user experience and audience needs.
