I am a freelance writer, tech industry veteran, and avid tennis player. I have always enjoyed writing, inspired by my 9th grade English teacher who mentored me and my 11th grade English teacher who praised my work. I strive to be creative, persuasive, and practical. My experience working in the tech industry as a strategic alliances professional and company executive enables me to provide insights that balance business and technology perspectives. I especially love to write for the purposes of teaching and inspiring, because people need reasons every day to smile and pass it on.
