    I recently graduated from Loyola Marymount University with a degree in Screenwriting. I extensively studied proper grammar, diction, and sentence structure to ensure your content is effectively communicated. Examples of my work in classes such as adaptation and French cinema can be found in my portfolio. This work is a great representation of my abilities to analyze film, communicate responses and reactions to it, as well as provide guidance for media selection. I'm a writer with a background in various types of writing, including fiction and nonfiction across different formats. I excel in effectively communicating ideas and products to different audiences, whether we're aiming to sell products, provoke people into action, or create an enjoyable piece of writing to entice readers. I have strong written and verbal communication skills, I'm experienced in translating content between the two mediums. I can help figure out the best medium to convey your ideas and products, curating unique descriptions, emphasizing strengths, and enticing the desired viewers.
