Finding the story in the everyday

People talk to me.

They tell me things about their day, their dog, how they got their first tattoo or how they cope with cancer.

I listen. I ask questions. Then I write.

Magazine style

Cover stories, profiles and socials.

Any style

Informative, travel, opinion, life.

Can I write for you?
