UX Writing

& Design

Everyone wants to be the hero of a story. So why not empower your user to do just that? My UX philosophy centers around the idea of giving a user as much agency and support as they need to use your product to go on a life-changing adventure. 

Things I've done for clients in the past include:
 

  • AI chatbot design

  • Brand identity and voice

  • In-app copy

  • Website copy refresh

  • UX research

  • And more!

Writing

My freelance writing career started off in 2016 when I wrote quick & fluffy science articles for EarthTouch, and deep, complex explainers for HowStuffWorks.

Since then, I have covered:

 

  • DIY 

  • Mental health

  • Science news

  • Food and beverage

  • Arts and culture

  • Theatre reviews

  • And more!

Edutainment

Events

Need programming for a science festival? Want to bring new potential members to your museum? Need a way to blow off steam at your science conference? Looking to advertise your company to a young, curious crowd?

Types of branded events I've produced:

  • Comedy shows

  • Variety (comedy + other art forms) shows

  • Storytelling shows

  • Lecture series

  • Educational wine tastings

  • And more!

Communication

Consulting

I'm a helpful person. I love solving problems, streamlining processes, and being the person in the room who gets to help someone have that big "Aha!" moment. As a result, I've gotten to work on a lot of different projects in a lot of different roles.

 

My consulting experiences have included:

  • Editing books/proposals/grants/environmental impact statements/etc.

  • Planning social media campaigns

  • Crafting spreadsheets that help teams communicate internally

  • Adding jokes or narrative to keynote speeches

  • And more!
     

I've even done weirder stuff, like creating an educational choose-your-own-adventure game, writing the script for a digital puppet show, and producing science-adjacent game shows.


I also teach communication! You know what they say. Give a man a fish, and he'll eat for a day. Teach a man to talk to fish, and he— Wait. I think I got that wrong. 

I've led communication workshops for students at George Mason University, employees at companies like Discovery, MIT, Georgia Aquarium, and more. I'm also a recurring guest lecturer at Georgetown University.
