I create and edit original content, making complex topics accessible, and bringing the most basic subject matter to life.

Experienced writer and editor with demonstrated success covering tech, media and startups, skilled in social media and coaching authors, freelance writers. Looking for new remote opportunities writing and editing in established and new areas. Available to create author coaching programs at the individual and company-wide level.

Throughout my life, I have always merged my passions with my skills.

I spent seven years in academia, focused on urban studies. I chose this area because, after moving to San Francisco, I developed a love for cities.

In the midst of a successful career as a writer/editor - freelance and full-time at TheStreet and Seeking Alpha - I decided to follow my passion for hospitality and craft cocktails by getting into the bar industry in Los Angeles. I worked with Los Angeles’s top hospitality professionals at The NoMad before becoming general manager at well-regarded craft cocktail bar, Melrose Umbrella Company in West Hollywood.

When the lockdown hit, I leveraged my writing skills and began publishing articles on the impact of COVID-19 on bars as well as bartender hospitality. With brand sponsorship, I plan to teach masterclasses on bartender hospitality by the end of the year.

I love cities. I love hospitality. I love the food and beverage industry. And I have a solid track record as a writer and editor across various spaces.

While at Seeking Alpha, I conceived the Seeking Alpha Author Experience. I designed this program to coach contributors on everything from structure and style to the type of content we wanted to publish. SA still promotes the Author Experience today.
