WRITING PORTFOLIO

Words are my bread, my butter, and my jam. I write website and web advertising copy, e-newsletters, social media, press releases, and advertisements, as well as long-form essays and blog entries. If there's anything that you don't see here, let me know! I love honing my skills and flexing my muscles on new projects.

E-Newsletters

Websites

From November 2018 to September 2019, I had the privilege of working with Photon Factory (design) and Story2Designs (website architecture, development, SEO, and UX design) on a new website for Velocity Dance Center. On September 24, 2019, the site soft-launched to rave reviews from the Velocity community. We wanted our artists to be the stand-out feature of the site. So for copy, we focused on maintaining a friendly, crisp tone, while emphasizing Velocity's open doors with a clean, broad design.
