Writing

What Do I Write?

Plenty of stuff! After getting a university degree and bouncing around on various career paths, I’ve realized there is one thing I always come back to—Writing. While reliability is nice, working for myself is a goal I’ve had for a long time. Finally, I decided to dive head first into being a freelance writer.

Copywriting

Web Content

My experience in copywriting involves writing for social media, websites, podcasts, as well as landing pages for Kickstarters. I’ve also ghostwritten blog articles on all kinds of topics and niches.

Printed Content

I edited and designed newsletters , posters, flyers, and business cards. As long as we still have trees, we’ll still print things on them. Although, I personally could live without the papercuts.


Expertise

Psychology

I spent my degree focusing on Cultural Psychology and Children’s Development. I was also a Research Assistant for 6 research labs while a student at UBC.

Pets

Growing up, I have all kinds of critters from cats and rabbits to birds and fish. I also have my lovely writing assistant named Lexicon, an 8-year-old cornsnake.

Outdoors

I’ve authored articles on everything from how to survive in the wilderness to what kind of gear you should bring with you. After all, every adventurer needs a good backpack or jacket.

Food & Beverage

After working at different bars specializing in craft beer and cocktails, I have a strong knowledge of the food and beverage industry.

Boardgames

I’ve been playing Carcasonne since before I can remember. My family is full of proud nerds and I regularly teach games to bring people to the dark side- I mean, the light side.

Marketing

What’s a KPI and what does SEO mean? Those are the kinds of articles I’ve written for newsletters, marketing agencies, and publications online.


Writing Samples on Medium:

I write portfolio pieces and sample articles on Medium to explore all sorts of topics. There I’ve been published in large publications like SlackJaw, Post-Grad Survival Guide, and The Startup. Averaging 5000+ views a month, it’s be a great community to partake in.
