In 2018, I founded SPARK Orlando, a local chapter of the national nonprofit the Freelancers Union, hosting monthly workshops for independent workers, entrepreneurs, and side hustlers and partnering with local coworking spaces to host the events.

I also co-founded and co-organized The Freelancers Conference 2020, a two-day virtual conference that welcomed 1,300+ registrants from 20+ countries, and $5,000+ in donations to the Freelancers Relief Fund.

These events give people the tools they need to level up in their business, meet other freelancers, and feel more comfortable talking about starting, pivoting, and celebrating their business.

I started the SPARK Orlando chapter because I wanted to learn more about freelancing, and I wanted to meet other freelancers, learn from them, and exchange stories. There wasn't anything like this group in the area, so it was a learn-as-you-go process, the best way to learn, right?

 

Our community has grown to 350+ members and counting, and we continue supporting each other virtually.

My background is in print journalism: interviewing, writing, editing, photography, newspaper and magazine layout, with some on-camera work, video package scripting, and editing.

I also worked in digital publishing for 5 years, helping global publishers, including Game Informer, Golfweek, and strategy+business.

I managed 100+ clients, helped jumpstart a company newsletter, created internal and external tutorials, and led client + company email marketing and digital subscription efforts.

Now, I love working on a variety of creative projects and troubleshooting tech concerns. I love challenging myself every day, learning new skills, stepping outside my comfort zone, and guiding clients like you in business storytelling.

Outside of work, I've been playing guitar for 16 years. I took chorus for a few days as a school elective, wasn't crazy about it, and switched to guitar class (rebellious, right?).

I went on to sing and play duets at open mics, placing third in my college's "Southern's Got Talent" show for a duet of "Falling Slowly" from the musical Once! Later, I played open mic nights at the Melrose Center.

Now, I play guitar for fun, alternating between learning techniques and writing interview features for music publications.
