my background story

Hey, it’s me, Alyssa (on the left there). You wanted the full story so I’m scratching the third-person spiel. 

To catch you up: I've been writing stories since my early elementary years.


Today, I have the formal education (Bachelor of Arts, FAU) and the experience (almost a decade) to turn these stories into whatever you need—from SEO goldmines to actionable advertising copy to inspiring written art.

Beginning my freelance career in 2012, I have since had the pleasure of working on more than 25 brands as a self-employed copywriter, creative consultant, and digital media specialist. I have also worked as a freelance journalist and editor and I have in-house and agency experience in digital marketing and public relations, respectively.

My varied background and skill set have prompted colleagues and clients alike to refer to me as a "unicorn"—capable of both creative and strategic thinking. See testimonials here.

From content strategy to production to promotion, I have done it all for companies of all sizes, building a cumulative client roster as eclectic as my interests ...


  • Media companies

  • SaaS companies

  • Retailers

  • Ecommerce stores

  • Marketing agencies

  • And more!

Known for my playful (yet professional) writing style, I'm an English language stickler and a chameleon, infusing your brand's voice into every word of copy. (Or not—depending on what you need!) See bylined writing clips here.

I will always be a Floridian at heart, but I currently reside in Lake Norman, North Carolina, where I can escape to the water if inspiration runs dry.

Wanna hire me? Wanna work together? Wanna hear about my garden or my latest athletic endeavor?

Let's chat.
