I am a versatile public relations and communications specialist, writer and magazine editor living and working in the San Francisco Bay Area. I am well versed in marketing and copy-writing in the biotech, e-commerce and events design production industries. I write action-oriented, highly targeted, and concise copy that helps optimize product, web, and brand pages and am motivated by measurable e-commerce results: improved conversion, increased site visits and volume of engagement.
Thanks to my extensive editorial experience, I excel at fostering relationships with media to drive PR results.
I shift gears when it comes to writing features and stories. My passions include theater, dance, literature, travel and multicultural cuisine. Thanks to this eclectic disposition, I am available for a broad variety of assignments.
