Writing has always been a huge focus and passion of mine. The ability to clearly and effectively communicate ideas is absolutely essential any profession, but especially digital communications and community management. I have experience writing grant applications, project proposals, creative briefs, and press releases. Plus, I have a special love for creating dynamic original content for both personal and professional blogs, and have been published in a number of online platforms.
In September of 2014, I was accepted as a Junior Contributor and began writing for The Artifice; an online media publication focusing on film, television, and animation. The site boasts over 4 million viewers and serves as both resource and community for those interested in academic analysis of contemporary pop culture.
- “How to Win a Husband: The Singular Path to Female Fulfillment on The Bachelor” was published on October 6, 2014.
- “Scandal’s Olivia Pope and the Rise of the Female Antihero” was published on January 5, 2015
In Spring of 2014, I wrote an op-ed that was published in our campus newspaper, The Scripps Voice. I have an extensive background in fundraising for arts and education and am a passionate defendant of that process.
- “Why I Want More for Scripps College” was written in response to criticism over the college’s current fundraising campaign.
For three months in 2013, I worked as an intern and digital strategist at Crown Social Agency in Seattle. While there, I contributed content for a number of client websites and wrote a series of fun posts for the Crown Social Blog. Some of my favorites are:
Some other projects include…
“The Last Seattle Summer” was a blog I started as a way for me to document my final summer as an undergraduate living in my hometown.
“Ask Me Where I’ve Been: Czech Republic” is currently featured on the Off Campus Study page of the Scripps website.
All of this leads me to my current writing endeavor: MEDIA ART ADVENTURE where I feature contemporary women artists and explore all things internet-related.
