Something personal to pluck the heartstrings.
If you're here, you probably want to learn a little more about who I am and what I do. I'm flattered.
You'll find a few things on this page: my professional resume, my education, and a quick story about how I became the writer I am today.
Some Proof That I Know What I'm Doing
I have a wide range of experience in all things content creation:
My time as the editor in chief of WORD Magazine sharpened skills like leadership, creative writing, professional editing.
Meanwhile, my three years as a content writer in marketing boosted my ability to persuade, connect to an audience, and work with digital media.
Those are just some of the projects I've worked on. Click below to see more.
Note: I recently went through a rebrand, so my Style Guide might reflect some of my older designs. It's still pretty cool, though.
More Than Just a Bachelor's Degree
I'm a proud alumnus of University of California, Santa Barbara. I graduated in 2020 with a Bachelor's in Communication and a minor in Professional Writing, with an emphasis on Multimedia Communication.
I learned a lot at UCSB - and about half of it happened in class. It's common to work on skills like time management and networking while in college. But since my experience also included challenges like the 2017 Thomas Fire, the 2018 Montecito Mudslides, and the 2020 Coronavirus Pandemic, I learned so much more.
Those difficult times taught me to be resilient, to be adaptable, to carry on when the world seemed to be falling apart around me. They taught me to take pride in my work, even if it can't be celebrated with a big graduation ceremony.
Because of all this, I believe my college degree says more about me than just my education. As a member of the Class of 2020, I am ready to take on anything the world may have up its sleeve.
...And then I'll probably write about it.
Here's My Story.
I was always a competitive kid. In elementary school, I started submitting my stories and poems to school competitions to prove that my writing was superior to all those sub-par stories about rainbows and flowers.
I joined the yearbook staff in high school and eventually became the editor in chief. Even though it was a while ago, that experience taught me more about writing, leadership and collaboration than I ever could have guessed - and it gave my competitive side a chance to enter (and win) some national writing competitions.
That carried over to my experience at the University of California, Santa Barbara. I became editor in chief of WORD Magazine, an arts and culture magazine about a little college town called Isla Vista. I took as many writing classes as I could fit in my schedule and loved every one.
Now, I've finished college - but I'm still doing all the same stuff. I work full-time as a content writer at a tech company based in Santa Barbara (because once you live here, it's impossible to leave). In my free time, I write. I write about people, places, experiences - anything that makes our world a little better.
I plan to keep sharpening my skill set, learning new things, and experiencing the world more and more.
Because life can feel like a whirlwind sometimes - and I'm here to enjoy the ride.
