Experience & Such

One day, I stumbled into a newsroom with little more than a portfolio of TGI Friday’s cocktails. Thankfully, they kept me.  

Now

The Best Armchair In All The Land
Lifestyle editorial, fashion copywriting, news commentary, B2B copy, SEO witchcraft—I do a little bit of everything for clients including Martha Stewart, Anthropologie, TimeOut, Thrillist, the Philadelphia Inquirer, Petco, Chewy and more. Check out my portfolio for recent work and feel free to get in touch if you like what you see. (Or if you don’t like what you see. I like mail.)
