Writer and Editor
First and foremost, I am a lover of language and of the written word. Writing and thoughtful editing intrigue me with their power to shape, direct, and move people. When I create, I do so with a reverence for those arts.
My wordsmithery includes essay, lyric, and biography writing; research article, legal, petition and proposal writing; copy and content writing, and an array of artistic writing. I also provide deep editing, proofreading, and feedback with varying degrees of expertise dependent upon subject matter.
I am formally trained in philosophy, although I think that says little about me. My motive for choosing philosophy in college, however, says much more. In short, I was unable to settle on a single discipline, a narrow focus: I am an insatiably curious person; I relish those spaces that reveal just how little I know.
In my work life, this particularity has brought me in contact with people in various industries, and has cultivated my obsession with writing and editing. I currently work on a freelance basis with a number of incredible professionals in the legal, music, marketing, health, technology, film, and art sectors.
As a writer and editor, I wield years of experience, a multidimensional lens, and a curiosity for the unknown--in addition to refined technical skills in research and analysis, syntax, marketing strategy, and creative thinking.
The tacit laws of branding often punish those who do not locate themselves neatly in a niche, and I accept that gladly. I believe my exploratory and liberal vision has benefits that other, seemingly more refined approaches, do not.
