Informing, entertaining, and inspiring with words for paper and screen.
As a freelance writer, I develop engaging copy that connects with your audience and increases your brand's awareness, impact, and following. Specializing in active, outdoor recreation content, I am happy to serve as your go-to resource for general marketing copy (web + social + print + promotional), blog development & management, and creative, informative article production.
I don't just write about the outdoor lifestyle - I get out and get dirty! This gives me the experience necessary to provide valuable insight, behind-the-scenes tips, experienced gear recommendations, and humorous, firsthand accounts of a life lived outside.
I always seek to understand the core goals behind your desire for high-quality content, and I enjoy the process of forming meaningful relationships with your brand or publication. I maintain a strong understanding towards the importance of meeting deadlines, word counts, and delivering copy that has been meticulously edited and designed with SEO keyword strategies in mind for those who require it. Ultimately, I hope to make your life as an editor or marketing manager easier.
