Summary

I write for humans; strives to make copy that converts. I play matchmaker between words and brand goals.

The industry/domain doesn't matter because a writer is as good as her research skills. However, I do boast of prolific experience in writing for Fintech, Fashion, Healthcare, IT, and Travel, Food & Lifestyle domains among others. I live to create worlds through words.
