On Me

At any given time my handbag holds two to three notebooks, twice as many tubes of lipstick, a sack of dog treats, and my passport.

I grew up in Oklahoma and Venezuela, moving to Seattle in 2007 to study Latin and Communications at the University of Washington. Currently, I live in Seattle's First Hill neighborhood with my six-year-old lab mix, Hadrian. We like to hit the farmers market on Sundays, make pasta dinners, and marathon watch TV shows.

Iā€™m passionate about travel. And food. And exaggerated minimalism.

On Writing

My approach to writing stems from my Latin background: creating beautiful, grammatically sound sentences that meld into cohesive and close-knit stories. Whether writing for travel, fashion, architecture, or current events, my aim is to unveil my subject in a way that's both informative and pleasing to read.

I specialize in lifestyle writing for print and digital publications, as well as product copy and internal communications for business clients. Iā€™m well versed in producing press releases, brand identities, and email campaigns. I have a strong proficiency in SEO tactics. I also have an extensive travel background.
