I'm California based writer with a BA and MA from the University of California, Berkeley. I am experienced in creative, analytical writing, conversational blog-style writing. I love learning and researching a topic to death. As a very small sample: I enjoy reading about anthropology, science fiction, poetry, literary fiction, feminism, literary theory, marine biology, and linguistics.
I am just getting my start in working as a freelance writer, but I have been writing academically and recreationally all my life. I love the nuanced expression of language, and how much can be conveyed by the simplest sentences. Writing says much more than the words on the page and I don't think that either clarity or cleverness needs to be sacrificed in any written work, unless it is by design.
