Writer / Editor
New York, NY
WHAT DO YOU DO?
WHAT STEPS DID YOU TAKE TO GET TO WHERE YOU ARE NOW?
I studied literature in multiple languages at an Ivy League university. I have ghost-written articles for millionaire CEO's. Through my 15 years of studying and performing both music and comedy, I've learned how to manipulate rhythm and inflection for a more engaging audience-performer interaction.
How do you stand out in your field?
I offer a unique combination of top-tier academic expertise and a lifelong commitment to creative expression.
WHAT ARE YOU WORKING ON RIGHT NOW?
I am currently writing a collection of satirical short stories. My dad and I are co-writing my autobiography about growing up with ADHD. I am also constantly writing jokes and journalistic pieces on my daily cultural observations. Oh, and I'm still writing articles on behalf of CEO's.
WHAT'S YOUR STYLE/PERSPECTIVE/TASTE? DO YOU HAVE A PROJECT THAT REPRESENTS THIS?
I tend to inhabit a more methodical voice in a corporate or academic settings, while my "performer" personality steals the spotlight when writing creative pieces.
WE ARE ALL SLASHIES WITH MULTIPLE SKILLS, WHICH ONE DO YOU WISH YOU COULD DO MORE OFTEN?
I wish I could help create more stories out of thin air.
WHAT IS FRUSTRATING YOU RIGHT NOW?
Get off your phone! There are millions of interesting people in New York. You won't meet them by playing Solitaire or refreshing Instagram.
IF YOU COULD HIRE SOMEONE FOR $20/HR, WHAT WOULD YOU HAVE THEM DO TO MAKE YOUR DAY EASIER?
Follow me around all day and angrily stare at every slow-walker walking slowly in front of me.
LET'S BRING OUT THE TIME MACHINE. WHAT DO YOU WISH YOU COULD HAVE TOLD YOURSELF, WHEN, AND WHY?
I wish I told my high school self, "Be more confident in your own personality and express it in as many different ways as possible. Write more. Speak more. Converse more.”
IF YOU COULD TALK TO AN EXPERT TO GAIN MORE INSIGHT ON SOMETHING, WHAT WOULD IT BE ABOUT?
How to tell a pre-conceived story in a way that seems spontaneous and natural -- how do I connect what I want to say with HOW I want to say it?
WHAT KIND OF OPPORTUNITIES/PROJECTS ARE YOU LOOKING FOR?
Short, long, fiction, non-fiction, corporate, and creative. I'm looking for it all.
If you have a raw idea but are struggling to put it into words, I'll take a stab at writing it for you. If you've already written something, I'm happy to help clean it up and create the best possible final product.
DESCRIBE YOUR IDEAL JOB/CLIENT/COLLABORATION.
Established industry leaders, up-and-coming innovators new to the scene, and everyone else in between.
Are you passionate about your work? Are you flexible? Are you communicative? Perfect. Let's collaborate.
WHAT IS YOUR HOURLY RATE, RETAINER, OR SALARY RANGE?
Generally $25/hour but varies by project!
HOW SHOULD SOMEONE APPROACH YOU ABOUT WORKING TOGETHER?
Email or Instagram DM me, then let's chat over the phone, FaceTime, or in person!
Just do me a favor: be ready to tell me your favorite restaurant in the city. I need recommendations!
HOW DO YOU STAY CREATIVE?
Say ALL my ideas out loud.
