I’m an experienced copywriter / editor / marketing strategist / brand manager. My background is in journalism and I specialize in storytelling, brand personality, and brand voice. I’ve been with Drawn Agency, a boutique design and branding agency in Oregon, for the last five years, so check out that page in my portfolio to see my most recent work. You can find some of the journalism I mentioned here. So, what else would you like to know about me?
I studied journalism and art history at Rutgers University and then went on to earn a master’s degree in magazine writing from New York University. I’ve written and edited all kinds of stuff, from CPG packaging copy and social media posts to in-depth features and actual books. I started out as a beauty intern with Seventeen magazine (and Sephora is still one of my happy places), but I have spent the majority of my journalism career in the action sports and outdoor industries. I went over to “the dark side” (marketing, communications, branding) for a job that allowed me to ski every. single. day. Luckily, that coincided with the rise of storytelling in marketing, so I’ve never stopped doing what I love most. Full transparency — I also believe that there are few things more satisfying than writing great brand copy and then seeing it in the wild.
My top dinner party guests? I’d have to say Marie Antoinette, Bill Murray, and Michelangelo Buonarroti. I have been surfing and skiing for as long as I can remember (literally). I’m afraid of heights but can’t resist a lofty vantage point. I’m an ardent lover of words. I enjoy discovering typos almost as much as I enjoy discovering new places. I’ve been fortunate enough to live all over the world, but to me, New Jersey and Maine will always be home. These days, I live in the PNW with my husband, our two daughters, and our old Land Rovers. And, I love hearing people’s stories — everybody’s got one, after all.
