About me

Originally from Philadelphia, PA, I relocated to Los Angeles, CA in 2020 to broaden my experience as a content creator and writer. I enjoyed staying busy, learning, and developing new skills on the go. That is what I’ve been able to do over five years of experience in marketing, communications, public relations, and writing for diverse audiences.

 

I always wanted my work to have an impact on others. Naturally, I gravitated towards public service. I’ve served two high-profile politicians in some of the largest cities in the U.S. This experience provided me with first-hand knowledge of crisis communications, public relations, and exceptional organizational and time management skills. Now, I can make strategic decisions and produce eye-catching and easy-to-read digital content quickly and efficiently. 

 

From writing speeches for political figures and recording PSAs with high-profile celebrities to covering live music festivals, designing graphics for billboards, and more, I’ve gained invaluable knowledge as a communications professional and creative. Working for the City of Los Angeles during a global pandemic has been especially challenging and rewarding. My work reaches people from different backgrounds and provides invaluable information and access to resources. I’m looking forward to continuing my career as a content creator and communications professional so I can continue to serve others.
