I’m a writer, editor, and podcaster with over 10 years of experience in higher education. I’m currently transitioning out of academia and interested in learning more about writing professionally in the public and private sectors.

In my career, I’ve done a lot of different kinds of writing, including educational content (quizzes, assessments, curricula, review guides, etc.), presentations, blog posts, email updates, LinkedIn articles, podcast descriptions, interview questions, social media posts, academic articles, proposals for funding, technical literature and instructions, and book reviews. Portfolio coming soon!

One thing I’ve learned from my informational interviews with those who’ve made the leap into writing from academia is that they almost all got a start from “that friend” who needed help with their website, blog, etc. If you are in need of such services, let me be your friend!

If you’re here to check out my past academic work, you can see my CV here and a short description of my primary research interests here.

I also created, hosted, and produced the podcast Itinera, in which I interviewed classicists about how they got where they are. Listen here:
