Writer & Editor | Nonfiction

 

I've written over 100 articles for TechCrunch, Entrepreneur, Huffington Post, Santa Barbara Magazine, Vietnam News, and more.

My work focuses on using personal narratives to explore larger themes, whether profiling the college dropouts who founded multi-million dollar brand MVMT or digging into the unseen army of ghostwriters powering the booming content marketing industry. Publications include Tech Crunch, Entrepreneur, Huffington Post, Santa Barbara Magazine, Vietnam News, and more.
