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.

I’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. I’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.
