I am a content marketing specialist and wordsmith with an MFA in poetry. I love hyping things and people I really believe in. Capturing the sentiment. Putting the ineffable thing into just the right words.
I love working with Chicago-based small businesses and entrepreneurs focused on enriching their community with a social mission or a creative streak. I write copy for @revenue and other service-providing entrepreneurs.
I fell in love with the Windy City and use my writing career to express that love in my unique way.
I also cover local poetry news and author events for the Windy City Times and review books here and there. When I’m not freelancing, I’m writing poems and working on The Craft Wire, a news and media hub for Chicago’s pop-up craft fair scene.
I love to incorporate feminism, mental health awareness and pop culture into my writing because these topics are part of my identity and therefore always on my mind. Writing through negative experiences is therapeutic, but when that work resonates with others, it empowers and transforms.
“Most good copywriters . . . fall into two categories. Poets. And killers. Poets see an ad as an end. Killers as a means to an end.’ If you are both killer and poet, you get rich.”
