Writing

Sunshine Arts Newsletter 

What started out as an exercise to further develop my design skills turned into a bigger project where I was able to interview all sorts of independent artists in South Florida. Click here to read the inaugural issue of Sunshine Arts!

Content Writing

A website is great...if your target audience actually finds you. SEO content writing is about making sure that not only is the writing fresh but that it is also well-researched, well-composed, and properly incorporates targeted keywords to connect you with potential new clients and engage them. In general, people don't understand SEO but they do know when they're bored, confused, or otherwise want to click off a page. Writing by a human being for other human beings can never be replaced by a machine, and that's why content marketing works. Since 2019 I have been a remote content writer for On The Map Inc. in Miami, FL.

Screenwriting

Since 2017 I have been a Reader for the Austin Film Festival's Script & Screenplay Competition. I read and assess screenplays, provide feedback to the writers, and determine which ones advance in the competition. I help writers find their own voice, tell fresh narratives, and write dialogue to serve as an extension of character development work. I've read hundreds of scripts in the following categories: feature screenplay (comedy and drama), shorts (comedy and drama), scripted podcast, television pilot (variety of genres), and stage plays.
