Overview

Hello. I am an author, columnist, freelance writer, and political satirist. I've also managed social media for various projects and organizations, including the 2012 Libertarian Presidential campaign.

Service Description

Whether you're looking for a social media manager to handle your online presence or a freelance writer to cover political issues, I am the candidate for you. I have a vast history writing ABOUT politicians and FOR politicians, as well as countless other organizations and publications.

I KNOW SOCIAL MEDIA

Over the years, the social media I’ve written and managed has been viewed by hundreds of thousands of people. I’ve managed social media on countless platforms, whether serious or humorous, and political or non-partisan. My tweets have trended on Twitter, and my posts on Reddit have landed on the front page. I know social media.

I KNOW POLITICS

I write opinion columns and articles about politicians. But I also write for politicians. Not only have I written on both sides of the political divide, but I’ve also ghostwritten social media for both a gubernatorial and a presidential candidate. I understand the fast-paced decision-making process that goes into politicians’ tweets, posts, and online comments. I know politics.
