I am an associate project manager and copy editor in Austin, Texas, with experience covering travel, food, entertainment and human interest. As of September 2020, I am a Certified Associate in Project Management (PMI), and I am eager to apply my skills and knowledge toward your company objectives.
Most recently, I was a full-time copy editor for Travelzoo. See my resume for details.
Before that, I worked as a content writer for FarePortal, where I wrote and edited landing pages and marketing emails for the various CheapOair brands; pitched and wrote for our Miles Away travel blog; and contributed toward our marketing campaigns.
I’ve interned for companies such as tech startup Sprinklr, Rolling Stone, Digital First Media’s Thunderdome, Lucky and Redbook, among many others. On the education side, I have a Master’s in Journalism from NYU and a Bachelor’s in Journalism from the University of Missouri-Columbia.
I’m passionate about colorful, compelling writing and am experienced in both print and online journalism covering a variety of topics including local news, beauty, fashion/style, personal finance, food, relationships and lifestyle — though what I enjoy most are travel and entertainment writing. I am an excellent copy editor with a keen eye for detail, a skill I honed as the senior contributing copy editor for AList Magazine, which I did in my spare time.

One piece I’m proud of is from my first semester at NYU; I was inspired by M. Alice LeGrow to look into the lives of women who work as birthday party princesses. Read it here: A Tale of Professional Princesses
As part of a pop culture and entertainment writing course I took, I contributed weekly to our class blog. Read my posts here: NYU Pop Culture
