I am a passionate, truth-seeking creative interested in innovative editorial, publishing, and media initiatives. I've been told my diligence and energy thrives in any work setting. In five years, I see myself helping refine visionary ideas that will lead the next generation of media professionals toward a cohesive and socially conscious future, as well as helping ideate business initiatives that can target foreign social need and meet that need through interesting and effective campaigning. At 24, I currently work as a junior copywriter for the digital sector of a global PR firm -- Edelman Digital. However, previously I worked as an editorial intern at TED Conferences, where I wrote blog posts (and still freelance write for the blog), helped choose videos based on TED's editorial preferences, and managed other editorial projects independently. My notable accomplishment while working there included creating and writing some of the biographies for the TEDGlobal2012 Program that took place in Edinburgh, Scotland in June 2012, and I worked to write biographies and video descriptions for the TED2013 Talent Search auditions that were held in New York City. Prior to this position, I was an editorial assistant intern in the higher education division at Oxford University Press. While working at the non-profit book publisher, I largely worked on projects that involved gathering reviews, writing review summaries, and I also managed transmittal and contract documents to keep publishing schedules on track. During my final semester as an Emerson student, I worked for Emerson College's web services department transforming the SEO to optimize metadata components for all news articles on the Emerson College website. Also, during the summer before her last semester, I worked as a web development and production intern at Interior Design Magazine, where I produced, edited, and organized content for InteriorDesign.net and associated blogs (i.e. Neocon.Interiordesign.net and Designwire.InteriorDesign.net). I also edited event calendar submissions and photos for the "Best Of" book series and online slideshows, product pages, and the like. I love photography equally as much as I love writing, and I'm always available for freelance work. Also, I love hearing other people stories--so, go ahead and contact me!
