Welcome to my site!
I'm a journalist, editor, and marketing professional with 7+ years of experience. My work is centered on bridging impactful design with unrivaled storytelling to drive results. Through strategic marketing and affecting stories, my media work engages and reaches even the most niche audiences.
As an undergraduate journalism student at Georgia State University, I founded Quaint Revolt Media - a multimedia lifestyle publishing brand that amplified emerging creative voices in art, design, and other forms of cultural production. As editor-in-chief, I hired and managed a team of 10 employees, while overseeing business development, editorial and creative direction (digital and print), fundraising initiatives, and more.
I'm also a graduate of New York University, where I obtained a master's in publishing. During my studies, I was honored with the Hearst Endowment for Magazine Media Scholarship and the Award for Excellence in Digital and Magazine Media. Currently, I work as a podcast marketer for iHeartMedia by day and as a freelance editor by night, working on book projects for companies such as Ulysses Press and the forthcoming journal, Journal of STEM Leadership and Broadening Participation.
