a bit about me:
I am an accomplished and energetic professional with a solid history of achievement in innovative education, writing, and project management.
I enjoy taking complex subjects and transforming them into content that's engaging and easy to understand. I take my work seriously, but not personally. Every teammate, editor, and subject matter expert I've worked with has made me a better writer, and I always go the extra distance to produce high quality content.
A grammar nerd at heart, I worked as a private EFL teacher for many years while living in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. This experience fueled my love for teaching and engaging with others, and acted as the gateway to co-producing a video course for learners of Brazilian Portuguese, as well as helping to shape an e-learning start-up for English language acquisition.
After returning to the U.S. in 2010, I moved to Seattle and have been working on a freelance basis as an instructional designer, writer, and project manager. I am currently looking for full-time opportunities.
