Content Strategist, Copy Editor, Copywriter, Editor, Ghostwriter, Writer, Managing Editor

New York-based B2B writer and conference producer specializing in financial services, global trade, development, banking and FinTech, with fast-paced newsroom experience across multiple topics.

I am an experienced writer and editor for print, digital, and social media, specializing in branded or sponsored content, as well as an accomplished conference producer and moderator. Based in New York City for over 10 years, I am available for both freelance and full-time opportunities in content generation, marketing​, and public relations. I have a particular interest in ​international trade, financial services, FinTech, development finance, travel, ​and real estate.

With a career in B2B publishing that began almost 15 years ago, I was also fortunate to spend time in a busy digital newsroom, as well as undertake extensive travel. My professional experience includes writing news items, feature articles, and cover stories; curating sourced content, and creating client-led editorial and thought leadership pieces.

At Euromoney I helped build a solid online and social media presence for an industry-leading trade finance publication​ and managed an editorial calendar to daily, weekly and monthly deadlines, managing both in-house staff and freelance writers. I also worked closely with both internal and external partners on editorial projects and events, helping generate $1 million in annual revenue in the Americas. In addition, I launched new products and channels for our editorial content, as well as chairing conferences and moderating panel discussions - something that I continue to do at in-house and industry events to this day.

As a freelance writer, I have worked on both B2B and B2C projects for banks, consultancy firms, and industry groups. My time on the news desk at Mail Online's US headquarters provided me with invaluable experience in time-sensitive​ stories read by an audience of millions.
