Hi there! I’m an experienced freelance journalist based in San Francisco. With more than a decade of reporting and editing experience for outlets such as Agence France-Presse, the San Francisco Chronicle, and the Center for Investigative Reporting, I’ve covered everything from revolution to campaign finance.
These days, I’m mostly focused on helping other people wrangle their words. I work with a variety of individuals and organizations on virtually all aspects of the publishing process, including ghostwriting, developmental editing, fact-checking, copyediting, and proofreading. I’ve worked with writers of all experience levels, from journalism students and early-career freelancers to veteran investigative reporters. Recent clients include Medium, GOOD Magazine, Aspiration Partners, EdSource, and the Center for Investigative Reporting, among others.
I’m proud to be an alum of the City College of San Francisco journalism program, and I also have a bachelor’s degree in nursing from San Francisco State University. I spent much of my twenties as a nomadic freelancer chasing stories around the world, and I was a reporting fellow in Egypt with The GroundTruth Project in the aftermath of that country’s 2011 uprisings.
These days, you can mostly find me in my kitchen, typing words for clients while drinking too much coffee. I’m always on the hunt for new projects and would love to hear more about your editing/writing/fact-checking/research needs!
