I love stories. They help us make sense of ourselves and the world around us. Stories give life meaning and purpose. And we can use stories to create, to connect with others, and to share our vision and dreams with the world. Let's tell your story together.

Scroll down to check out samples from my professional copywriting portfolio. These writing samples will give you an idea of the way I can bring your values and ideas to life using words. Want to see more examples of my web content? Send me a message and let me know what you have in mind.

The place storytelling feels the most alive in my professional life is when I work with clients around their brand narrative. Yes, telling a compelling and cohesive brand story is a good strategy as far as marketing is concerned. But telling an authentic and relatable story is also the way to connect with your audience and grow your business. And here's why you need a brand story: emotional appeals always win.


I also love the way writing and storytelling help us understand and process our own experiences. In my portfolio of personal essays, I share what it's been like to come to terms with the messy, vulnerable, human parts of myself.
It is my hope that by sharing my own experiences and feelings through creative writing, I can establish a space for others to identify and relate. I cover personal essay topics like identity, spirituality, meditation, addiction, and more.
Why? I believe that we're at our best when we're connected. That's why I want to use my story writing to forge the kinds of connections with others that help sustain all of us.
Below you'll find a portfolio of my essays and stories. You can see even more of my personal portfolio on Medium. I'd always love to hear what you think, so please feel free to get in touch and share your thoughts and feelings.
