Hemisphere magazine

Freelance Writing

I was recently published to a potential 12 million readers a month in Hemispheres, the inflight magazine of United Airlines. The piece was about train obsessives in Japan. You think our train spotters are weird? I have also recently completed several city guides for a major expat advice site.

I am a staff writer with the long-running and popular science, tech and health site redOrbit. With hundreds of thousands of readers on the site everyday and the opportunity to interview high profile figures and find stories, this has given me consistent opportunities to improve the journalistic side of my skills. Here is a sample, about how speaking in a made-up language can help with mental disorders and is generally very beneficial.

I have written for many other clients, doing copywriting, SEO, white papers, product descriptions and comedy.
