Young at heart. Free Spirit. Old soul.

Some people know about me from The Pincushion Podcast, others see me on Scrapple TV’s Creepy Basement.  Either way, I’m a geeky open minded spirit with a lot to say.  

By day, I’m a freelance copywriter for various social media and blogging clients.  By night, I’m a podcaster, writer, comedian, and personality in the Philadelphia area.

I love introducing small businesses to the world of social media. I like to go above and beyond for my clients and not just provide Facebook and Twitter updates– but an overall internet presence. I’ve even introduced podcasting to a number of my clients and I’m producing HD videos for their YouTube Channels.

    I acted as Associate Producer of ShadowBox pictures where I learned a great deal about the production business. I maintained the Editing schedule for each day/week, and created call sheets for corresponding shoots. I developed and automated a tape library system, which benefits ShadowBox’s history and accessibility to their entire tape inventory. I managed all travel arrangements nationally for film engagements that were efficient and cost effective. I served as Craft Services, Wardrobe, Talent Manager, Assistant to the Director, Grip, and Script Supervisor on shoots. I fully produced the commercial for VOJO energy mints. Now, I freelance for ShadowBox Pictures as an acting Production Assistant and Production Coordinator. I also manage the company’s social media (twitter, facebook, LinkedIN), and write blog posts for their blog that involve production tips, and news.
