I’m passionate about writing content that helps people find joy in the everyday—and also about making that they can find that content, whether it’s discoverable via search or shared via strategic means.
A life and career in New York City was always something of an inevitable as far as I was concerned. From a young age it seemed everyone around me had started their career in Manhattan, so I was going to too. Little me would be proud: I’ve now worked and lived on the island itself.
Prior to landing on my feet in NYC, I was a student at Boston University and a barista-freelancer in Dublin, Ireland. In Boston I studied words, in two forms: as a student of literature (resulting in a Bachelor of Arts in English) and as a student of the media (resulting in a Bachelor of Science in Journalism). In a not entirely off-brand move, I completed my senior research in a third and fourth discipline: history and gastronomy, diving into the social, political, and economic role of the coffeehouse in Europe.
During my time as an undergraduate, I left Boston—and in fact the U.S.A.—behind on two occasions: to spend a summer learning the ropes of travel writing in the sunburnt footsteps of Bryson in Sydney and to study Shakespeare a stones throw from the Globe Theatre in London.
And when it came to it, following graduation I didn’t feel quite ready for the inevitable docking in Manhattan, and instead I floated back the way my ancestors had come to spend a year as a freelance food writer (with a very active side hustle as a barista) in Dublin, Ireland.
All this to say, I’m happy to be where I am now—but I’m never opposed to new journeys. At this point, I can say I’m nothing if not a product of the cities that I’ve called home and all the experiences and education they’ve brought me.
I love to chat, so if you do too (or if you’re looking for someone to write or optimize some content), send me a note—I’m always looking for my next adventure, even if it doesn’t take me beyond my (very comfortable) desk chair.
