I worked as a freelance writer for two years and have spent the last three years building my skill set as an editor and copywriter.

I work to create spaces for underrepresented voices and unique ideas.

Right now, I am a deputy editor at So Yummy, where I am working on building their brand using data-based tactics.
WHAT'S YOUR STYLE/PERSPECTIVE/TASTE? DO YOU HAVE A PROJECT THAT REPRESENTS THIS?
WE ARE ALL SLASHIES WITH MULTIPLE SKILLS, WHICH ONE DO YOU WISH YOU COULD DO MORE OFTEN?
I would like to continue to grow as a copywriter for creative projects.
WHAT IS FRUSTRATING YOU RIGHT NOW?
Balancing my passion projects with my full-time job.
IF YOU COULD HIRE SOMEONE FOR $20/HR, WHAT WOULD YOU HAVE THEM DO TO MAKE YOUR DAY EASIER?
Answer my e-mails and arrange my schedule.
LET'S BRING OUT THE TIME MACHINE. WHAT DO YOU WISH YOU COULD HAVE TOLD YOURSELF, WHEN, AND WHY?
I would have told myself that following your passion isn't insane.

I'd love to gain more insight on building a consistent, profitable freelance business.
WHAT KIND OF OPPORTUNITIES/PROJECTS ARE YOU LOOKING FOR?

DESCRIBE YOUR IDEAL JOB/CLIENT/COLLABORATION.
I recently worked on a freelance copywriting project that allowed me the time and flexibility to come up with different creative angles. The best part was that the client was super communicative and gave me every last piece of information I'd need to complete the task at hand.
WHAT IS YOUR HOURLY RATE, RETAINER, OR SALARY RANGE?
For writing, it depends on the project — length, what sources are needed, how many rounds of revision are expected. For general copywriting, I charge $60/hour.
HOW SHOULD SOMEONE APPROACH YOU ABOUT WORKING TOGETHER?
I love a detailed e-mail that includes a project description, what would be needed of me, a budget, and a timeline.
HOW DO YOU STAY CREATIVE?
I read as much as I possibly can!
