    Hello and welcome to my profile! I am a professional writer with a bachelor’s degree in Biology from Boston University. Having poured my mind and heart into hundreds of highly praised essays, research articles, and projects throughout college, I gradually developed into the prolific writer I am today. A few of my poems and essays have been featured in my university’s CORE Curriculum journal. I was hired by many fellow students as well as principal investigators to proofread and edit their work. This includes grant proposals, cover letters, and resumes. After college, I started Upwork with the hope of funding my optometry school education via my talent in writing. Though I am only one month in (as of 11/18), my work has already been approved by several blog owners and marketers who continue to hire me for further projects. My success as a writer comes from the immense care that I put into researching, writing, and polishing material that will connect with a vast audience. Whether you are looking for a fresh pair of eyes for your article, resume, or cover letter, a brilliant content writer for your website or blog, or an entrepreneurial mind who will help you advertise and grow your business, you will be glad you hired me.

    Between my industrial design background and my experience working at both large and small tech companies, I have developed a love for collaborating with a team to come up with an idea and then refining that idea until it is ready for the market. My expertise is in co-developing a concept and then using paper sketches or Figma to rapidly prototype and get us to our desired outcome as quickly as possible. Once we know our direction and understand our users, I deliver pixel-perfect designs that are ready for marketing to post or for engineers to start building. I design everything including: logos, websites, apps, social media posts, and entire brand identities. I love the process of telling the story of an idea and delivering the idea with as much craft as possible.
