In IT by day and a freelance writer by night, I’m a lover of puns and an alliteration addict. I love to run, read, write and be spontaneous, as long as my neurosis and type A personality doesn’t get in the way of anything. Extremely self motivated, I am a marathon runner and recently completed my first full iron (that’s a 2.4 mile swim, 112 mile bike ride and a 26.2 mile run done back to back, by the way).
Alas, I digress – back to my professional side. I graduated from Stetson University in 2012 with a major in communications and minors in marketing and journalism. Many have described me as a proven relationship builder with excellent interpersonal and communication skills as well as a dedicated, diligent contributor who has a strong work ethic and who enjoys collaborating with various types of people. In other words, I’m tenacious and like to socialize. Additionally, I have also been published in numerous publications, such as Huffington Post, Elite Daily, Thought Catalog, Buzzfeed, the Broward New Times, Wilton Manor Gazette, South Florida Gay News, Atlantic Current and more.
In a nutshell, I don’t sleep. I thrive off of taking on numerous projects, even if I get overwhelmed. It drives me. Other fun facts: I consider myself a cheese connoisseur and humor through self deprecation is my specialty.
My motto is as follows: If you tell me I can’t do something, I’m going to do it. I have achieved numerous goals that I was told I couldn’t do, such as raise over $3,000 in one night for my mother’s fundraiser I organized, make the collegiate cheerleading team, create some sort of career out of writing, and more. Life is about going for your goals, and achieving what you want. Success isn’t being rich and wealthy- it’s both being proud and accomplishing your achievements, which inevitably gives the middle finger to all those naysayers. It’s the best feeling in the world – trust me, I know.
So, without further ado, check out my site for clips of my writing as well as ways that I can help YOU achieve your goals. Oh, and give the middle finger to those naysayers, of course.
