    Hello. I specialize in editing fiction, writing fiction, and blog writing. I received my BA from UMass Dartmouth in 2010 double majoring in English and History. While there I was section editor for the arts and entertainment section of the student run weekly newspaper, The Torch. I also worked as a tutor in the Writing and Reading Center on campus and had two essays published in the first issue of the English department's ejournal, Corridors. I attended Boston University where I completed my MA in English and American Literature in 2013. I maintain a blog where I post some of my short stories, creative writing exercises, and book reviews. I have always loved to collaborate on projects, especially writing projects. I would love the opportunity to help you with whatever projects you have.

    Photo Editor and Graphic Designer

    United States - Last active: 10 days ago - Tests: 1 - Portfolio: 15

    I have a lot of skills in a variety of areas. Many depending on creative problem solving and communication and the study of social interaction developing from the two. I feel a deep commitment to education and social development in new and inclusive ways. Since there are lasting effects from my stem cell transplant for my leukemia that make "normal" ways of holding employment difficult. I've been able to apply the skills learned from my life in international and urban environments to pioneer my home based businesses and be able to participate in local organizations and development that I believe in. I'm really excited to continue this journey and see what's next.
