You have important things to say.
I want to help you amplify your voice!

A little about my journey as a freelance writer:

Just before the first COVID case was announced, I left my job and left an expensive Master’s of Computer Science program. I knew I was making the right decision to leave my Master’s program when I learned that most of my classmates worked for Boeing, and that Boeing was paying 100% of their tuition. So I took a leap of faith, quit school, and turned to freelancing full time. Little did I know, January 2020 was the worst possible time to do this, and yet, I’ve never been happier with my career!

Teaching Experience & Coaching Philosophy

As an undergrad I worked for Portland Public Schools as a substitute teacher for autistic students. In addition to meeting the most creative, wonderful kids, I honed my skill at identifying students’ natural learning styles. I also developed a creative writing workshop at Clark College, teach classes at Hugo House, and in a previous life, I was the co-founder and admin for a music school

Based on your unique strengths and ideal learning style, I’ll help you custom tailor a management system for your submissions and opportunities. I know it’s a cliché popular among tech bros, but “work smarter, not harder” has been an important lesson for me, helping me steadily slog through the hardest assignments.

Mapping a Strategy: Fighting Imposter Syndrome One Step at a Time

Becoming a freelancer can be intimidating, but I’ll be there to help you navigate the process, teach you the unspoken rules, and avoid the challenges and pitfalls that I wasted time and money to learn from.
