A warm hello!  My experience is in languages, primarily English and Spanish.  I hold a Bachelor of Arts in Spanish from Wellesley College in Wellesley, Mass.  I am a writer, photographer, and editor by trade who dabbles in web design, translation, and tutors sporadically.  I currently freelance for a number of organizations, including most recently Newsela, an organization that levels Associated Press news articles and other written works for young readers, including those struggling with their lexical skills.  

My time freelancing has been the most challenging and rewarding stage of my life.  Whereas before, writing was something done simply for pleasure, now I have the added bonus of worrying about my own financial well-being.  No longer under the arguable shelter that universities provide, my livelihood is wholly in my own hands.  This is why I plan to provide the utmost in services of writing, editing, translation, and more, hopefully to your liking and for your benefit.  

My interests are in the arts, language arts and film included, the urban farming movement, history, and myriad current events.  I will write on any and every topic...so keep your eyes peeled:  you could be my next client!
