Experience

Freelance Writer

Jan 2018

I began freelancing in 2018. I've since ghostwritten speeches, business introduction letters, company mission statements, newsletters, and press releases. I've also ghostwritten video game content, business slogans, blog posts, short stories, a year's worth of tweets and hashtags, and created brand names.

Blogging

Jun 2013

Active blogger for 5 years across various different blogs, the latest of which is my own Wordpress blog.

Senior Editor

Apr 2012

I've spent six years working as a proofreader, copyeditor, slush reader, associate editor, and a senior editor. This ongoing experience has honed my own creative writing skills as well as sharpened my eye for what works and doesn't work in fiction. Additionally, it allowed me to practice tact and cordialness as an editor when rejecting submissions, accepting them, helping conduct author interviews, and responding to authors' questions.

Twelve Years of Dabbling in Photoshop

Jan 2006

For 12 years, I've used Adobe Photoshop for various projects. The basic and intermediate skills I've honed allowed me to create, manipulate, and edit images for personal projects and in collaborations.

Fiction Author

Jun 2003

I've always loved and had a keen interest in literature, creative writing, languages (primarily English), and the printed word. I started actively and earnestly writing fiction 15 years ago and am an active fiction author today. It pairs well with freelance writing.

Publications

A short story

A seven-year-old (and currently active) science-fiction and fantasy magazine. (Not the online magazine I work for!) The magazine also publishes original science-fiction books.
