Old World Craftsmanship. New Media Landscape.

I'm a professional writer with experience writing online catalog copy, trade magazine articles, web pages for everything from home decor to construction company websites, and how-to articles on dozens of fresh DIY topics. I'm an expert blogger with a knack for breaking down complex topics into friendly, easily-digestible posts. Like any Renaissance woman worth her salt, I'm interested in all forms of creative expression and love to dig into research for my writing projects. I have a broad base of knowledge that elevates my work for clients and makes their projects sing. ***


For what it's worth, I hold a master's degree in English and creative writing. In addition to writing short fiction and poetry, I'm also an accomplished academic writer, and these skills serve me well in white papers and research projects. My ability to craft a well-turned metaphor also sets apart my commercial writing, so if you're looking for something more enduring than basic, SEO-driven drivel, we should talk. ***


I'm also a certified educator with 18 years of classroom experience teaching English and Spanish at all levels, from kindergarten to college. I've published multiple curricula and white papers for school districts as well as parent-friendly articles and blog posts. ***


In addition to my work as a teacher, I'm a pretty kick-ass gardener with over 15 years of experience growing food using sustainable methods. I've written about all my adventures and offered advice about organic gardening, food preservation, cooking, frugal living, DIY projects, and travel at my blog, Port Potager, since 2011. I’m also excited to announce that my debit collection of short stories is due out from Annorlunda Books in Fall 2017. ***


As a freelance writer, I've helped hundreds of satisfied clients get high-quality, professional writing for all of their projects. Whether you're ready to finally get that blog off the ground or want to launch a new marketing campaign online or on paper, feel free to get in touch.
