Experience + Resume

BIO

I’m passionate about words, and I spend most of my time around them. Packing years of experience in copywriting, editing, and graphic design, I clock in with a 95 WPM typing speed, providing smooth turnaround and an understanding of the business from multiple angles.

Five years ago, after rising from the lowly rank of staff writer on my high school’s newspaper, I took on the responsibility of Literary Magazine Editor, a position that whetted my apetite for the unique combo that is writing, editing and design. I handled the layout creation, content review and proofreading of 30+ page magazine Amazink, which featured everything from poetry to short stories. Alongside this I continued to write and edit copy in three other major print productions –The Panther Press, our newspaper; A Novel Idea, and Thrive, each 200+ page national award-winning yearbooks. Since this extensive stint, I have continued to gain experience in writing and design through jobs and classes. A degree in Graphic Design has proven invaluable on my path in this area of expertise.
