writing experience

I have experience ghostwriting blogs and books, creating organic SEO content writing, and providing manuscript and content consulting services. I recently began teaching fiction writing and literature classes for St. Louis Community College’s Continuing Education program.

You can find my work in the Webster Glimpse Alumni Magazine, Alive Magazine, St Louis Kids Magazine, and the hyper-local website ToastedRav.com (Update: site decommissioned). I have been asked to speak at Wizard World Comic Book and Gaming Convention and I have appeared on the television show Great Day St Louis, and radio station 1380 the Woman. My content work has also recognized by The Riverfront Times, Metromix St Louis, and AOL’s City’s Best.

In addition to content creation, I’ve had the awesome opportunity to collaborate with writers as a manager and editor for several multi-user blogs.

Please contact me for writing samples.

content marketing & SEO solutions

I have worked with several small businesses in the St. Louis area to provide content marketing services and content marketing consulting to support and grow their businesses. One of my core strengths is integrating traditional and online marketing campaigns into a unified story to support an established or developing brand.

I work with companies to develop a content marketing plan that organically supports SEO efforts currently in place, and can help develop and implement a search strategy to build your online presence that compliments your traditional marketing strategy.
