Author/Editor/Content Marketer

AN OVERVIEW OF MY BACKGROUND

I’m currently working on a sci-fi novel with a 5-year plan for completion as well as an autobiography which ties in theories of psychology, sociology, and philosophy with no set completion date.

I have always been passionate about writing and have not only pursued it as a hobby but have incorporated into my various positions to drive results for many of the agencies and clients for whom I have worked. I am adept at providing engaging content that tells a story or provides immediate value, to enhance the positive attributes of a brand as well as the services or products for which they offer, drive users to a point of conversion, & effectively represent their competitive advantage in their market.

FULL-TIME AND FREELANCE WRITING EXAMPLES

Please note that some pieces may be ghostwritten or have authors changed after the fact. Due to confidentiality, I’m unable to say which ones have actually been written by me. I feature the ones only that have my name attached, that I played in an Editor in Chief function, or that I have been given permission to mention.

As the Head of Marketing, Product & Analytics for Edstutia, I supervise our contracted content writers. Here are some of the pieces we have published:

Traklife Emerge

For Fall 2021, I took a step away from product management, operations and data analysis at Traklife to stand up the content department at Traklife Emerge — a new platform for artists, entertainment professionals, and creatives to network and develop their skills — with processes, editorial and style guides, and management of the first internship cohort for the department. We interviewed several people across my network who were industry professionals to complement our own original research. Here are some of the pieces my team turned out under my supervision and leadership:

From November 2018 to October 2019, I worked for an online music distribution network/platform as the Director of Marketing. Some pieces were written directly by me and others I played more in a role as Editor in Chief.

From February 2017 – June 2018, I was employed as Content Manager. Meaning, even though only the pieces below were written directly by me, I decided topics, editorial guidelines and reviewed any other pieces that we’re written during that time. The aim was to have a team of experts share their expertise — so all team members were required to write at least one piece per quarter.

The below links to pieces I wrote & researched in full myself (many of which since my employment have been removed from the website or updated with others as authors):
