About Me

My simplest introduction is this: I’m a San Diego-born, San Diego-based writer.

A little more about me —

I am my happiest on a quiet Sunday morning with coffee in one hand and something to read in the other.

I prefer early bedtimes and a morning walk or yoga over a late-night Netflix binge and sleeping in. I make a mean egg scramble and a side of guac that could rival your favorite from the local taco joint. I find old doggos more lovable than puppies. Oh, and I love words. So much so that I went and made them my job.

A little more about my job experience —

I’ve been a copywriter for half a dozen years now, and I can’t imagine a profession that’s more fit for me.

My career began at a home remodel and design e-commerce company where I wrote hundreds (if not thousands) of descriptions for products that range from an oversized clock you’d hang on the wall above your sofa to an eight-piece furniture set you’d feature in your formal dining space. I also wrote short-form copy for their weekly shop newsletters. After a few years, a promotion, and a cross-country move, I outgrew my role and sought out a position a bit more challenging. That search led me to a global marketing company where I wrote email newsletters, website copy, landing page copy, video and radio scripts, in-store signage, print copy, and more for one of their Fortune 500 clients.

The growth I’ve experienced in my short career prepared me for my current role as a copywriter at Snap Inc. where I help craft narratives that position Snapchat as a leading ad platform for global businesses.
