As a freelance food writer, content marketer, and copywriter, I employ words to make brands stand out from other businesses by getting their story and unique message out, helping them not only attract customers but retain them—and increase sales. Using the power of words, I write content that inspires and propels customers to action, whether it’s working with notable brands like DoorDash, Toast, or Good Eggs—or the likes of Condé Nast Traveler, Food & Wine, Eater, Gastro Obscura, and more.
