About me: I’m sort of a big nerd who has had unanticipated success in tricking large companies into letting me write, edit, and solve problems for them. After graduating college, I joined Rosetta Stone’s writing team. I helped to build advanced levels of their core offering, add an online component to their Totale product, and contributed to the launch of Reflex in Southeast Asia. My contribution to these products ranged from inception to completion, helping with almost every step of the process: from brainstorming, to content generation, to consulting on the images, and performing quality assurance.
After leaving Rosetta Stone, I worked as an editor for both Lexis Nexis and a private consulting firm. During this time, I was in charge of copy and style editing over massive amounts of text, ranging from educational materials, governmental reports and studies, and official correspondence. I also used my graphic design abilities to create brochures, workbooks, and manuals for clients.
In my free time, I like to publish tabletop games for fun.
I have a judo grip on the English language and I love using it. People say to do what you love, and if given the opportunity to work with words, I will throw myself absolutely into that job. I would love an opportunity to bring my passion to your company.
