What I Do + Who I Am
By day, I run my own creative studio, where I offer support with creative strategy + copywriting + content marketing. Here’s all the info on how to work with me.
By night, I still love to write. Check out my blog here. And a few articles I’ve written here. And I’m currently working on my first book manuscript too—really excited about that!
I’ve been all over the world, sometimes with my overly friendly pup Tula.
Why I Do What I Do
I’m multi-passionate and I’ve followed my own path, all with one ultimate goal in mind: to use my talents + creativity to help others.
With lots of dedication, I created my own business. Working with all different types of people from around the world allows me to have a bigger impact and freedom—and that’s really important to me.
What I’ve Done [My Experience]
I’ve spent time in countries all over the world, including a few months in Peru, a month in Bali, and have been all over Europe, SE Asia, and the U.S (I even drove across the country by myself!).
Some other fun facts:
- I volunteered at an orphanage in Peru, a home for teen moms in Cusco (also in Peru), and a community development program in a small village in Costa Rica
- I ran a social services program at a food pantry on the north side of Chicago. I made many friends.
- And I worked with moms on the south side of the city in Woodlawn and Englewood, two of Chicago’s most underserved neighborhoods. Everyone was lovely to me, don’t believe anything you hear on the news, and we literally built a Peace Mural there—my name is on it.
- I also started my career working at two big ad agencies (mcgarrybowen + FCB). I loved my co-workers but found cubicle life to be suffocating.
- And I managed digital communications for two international hunger organizations, Food Tank and The Global Foodbanking Network.
Basically, I love to use my writing skills and creativity each and every day. And so far, it’s been an adventure! 😉 Learn more about what I do here.
What I Believe
I believe all people are equally deserving.
Equality is the guiding value in my life. I love to connect with people and learn about the positive things they are doing. It’s so important to focus on the good stuff! And it’s also important to acknowledge and do something about the not-so-good stuff.
I believe there is enough for everyone.
There’s enough to go around, we just need to reallocate our resources. Everyone deserves to have all their needs met. And there are so many kind and generous people making that happen.
I believe change comes from within.
True, lasting change happens within each person and has a ripple effect on the world around us. By doing whatever we’re truly good at, we’re sparking change within the people we reach. That’s exciting and it’s how the world around us improves – person by person.
