Do I contradict myself? Very well then, I contradict myself. I am large, I contain multitudes.
Walt Whitman


 

I've been a freelance content writer for close to ten years. It all started with a tweet and grew naturally from there. 

 

I love new writing challenges that allow me to flex my literary muscles, create content that's personable, delivers succinctly on a clear message, and encourages readers to think more deeply about topics I'm passionate about.

 

I try to live by the advice know something about everything and everything about something. It's the advice that leads my writing and the clients I work with. So, while my writing may be a little eclectic, everything I write is fuelled by a quiet curiosity and deep interest to better understand my fellow humans.
