Freelance, 2011 - present
I have been working as a freelance copywriter for the past two years specializing in social media, blogs, publications, and marketing. Being a social media manager means I get to collaborate with various clients to plan, implement, and manage their social media presence. 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.
Contributor to the Blog, present
I contribute to Quirk Book's literary blog on a semi-regular basis. I primarily contribute opinion pieces/editorials. Some of my posts have received particularly high traffic (10 Reasons to Date a Bookworm) and my work has been well received by the staff of Quirk Books as well.

Past: Associate Producer Present: Freelance/Social Media Copywriter, 2014
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.
