Content Strategist, Copy Editor, Copy Writer, Ghostwriter, Writer, Writer Manager

Tax pro turned game dev who helps indies & the self-employed crush it. Love toads.

I am a licensed tax professional (Enrolled Agent) who left the field to pursue game development full-time. I love helping other indie developers and creative people attain this dream, so I equally love writing about entrepreneurship, freelancing, small business and tax laws, and the art and business aspects of game development. I also write about SEO, digital marketing, and herpetology since I have over 20 years of experience as a toad mom!

In addition to writing, I also offer content strategy services and engagements are discussed on a case by case basis. I can assist you with keyword mapping and strategy, content planning and editorial calendars, customer journey maps, buyer persona creation, and helping you figure out what your audience really wants. My industrial specialties in content strategy are focused on the tax preparation industry and the B2B and B2C aspects of the interactive entertainment industry but have had engagements in tech and healthcare.
