Who I Am 

Trust me, I’m in there.

Trust me, I’m in there.

…And What I’m All About

Web design

I have experience designing websites for businesses and fellow freelancers. Most of my websites are designed using Wordpress or Squarespace, which are inexpensive and easy to maintain. My websites focus on the highlights of your business, your team, and your services, using sleek and user-friendly designs. I am also a skilled writer, a skill which I developed greatly in pursuit of my undergraduate degree, and I employ that skill and experience in order to make your website look and sound its absolute best for your customers. I am willing to research your competition and can incorporate into your web design those website features that appear to be useful, common, or expected in your industry. I can also teach you how to easily access and make basic edits to your website once it has been completed. Finally, while it is not a part of basic web design services, I can also do basic graphic design if you need help building a logo or a brand.

If this is your first time building a website, I would encourage you to reach out to me by clicking on the Contact tab at the top of this page. I'll be happy to answer any questions you may have. I can also provide some additional samples of websites I've designed in the past for you to have a look at and see what my work is all about. If you would like to see a resume with more details about my education and employment history, please feel free to ask.

NB: I can write and design websites in English, Spanish, or Italian. / Yo hablo español / Io parlo Italiano.

writing and copy editing

I also have a great deal of experience in writing, proofreading, and editing, particularly in academic writing and in producing content for businesses. I can write web content, blogs, emails, and newsletters, all with a lively and nuanced writing style that I developed considerably as a student in the extremely writing-intensive field of history. If you are considering hiring me for a job producing or editing content for you, and you’d like to get a better idea of my approach to writing, please visit the Blog section of this website to view a writing sample. If you would like an additional writing sample, such as an academic or creative writing sample, or if you would like me to provide a sample edit of a small text of your choice, then I’ll be happy to send those along, as well. Just click on Contact at the top of the page to send me an email.

Social Media

I have a deep understanding of how social media works, and the best ways for businesses to employ various social media platforms in order to maximize visibility. I understand social media both from the business perspective as well as from a user perspective. I know what works with users of social media, and what doesn't work to drive user activity. I can manage and post to social media accounts for your business, resulting in greater user engagements, and ultimately greater customer involvement with your business.

A Little More About Me…

Things I love: social justice, history, science, nature, travel, cows, pigs, dogs, cats, salads with lots of beets, urban exploration, loving friendships, reading, dancing with hula hoops, music festivals, and 90s movies.

 
I also very much enjoy viewing total solar eclipses.

I also very much enjoy viewing total solar eclipses.

Things I dislike: sneezing when the sun hits my face, food that’s too salty, winters that last too long, and cats that don’t like me.

I care about helping people. I care about being myself, and being honest about who I am and what I believe in.

You’ll just have to work with me if you want to know more.
