About

I've worked on websites in a number of roles including content strategist, UX, designer, and writer/editor. These are just a selection of projects I've done on the side. For more info on my professional work, visit my LinkedIn profile.

I also pursue a variety of interests beyond websites. I have a Masters degree in Health Communication, and have worked as both a writer and database manager for the Harvard School of Public Health. Fun fact: I worked as an autopsy assistant in one of my first jobs, which always makes for great small-talk. For more information, view my resume.

In my spare time, I play the electric guitar, read books, and enjoy video games (games are art!).
