Contributing Editor - Coffee Or Die Magazine - 08/2018 - 05/01/2020

From the beginning of Coffee or Die, I joined the team as a Contributing Writer two months after the publication went live. I researched, pitched, and wrote monthly lesser known history articles. As the magazine grew, so did my role amongst the team where I averaged 4-5 long-form (3,000 words) articles per month. 

Managing Editor - One More Wave - 03/2018 - present

Established a blog section called Riders where we share the stories of military veterans and how their journey has been positively impacted by surf and art therapy. Each story requires interviewing, writing, editing, and proofreading, which ultimately allows each story to come together. 

Freelance Writer - Multiple clients - 09/2017 - present

I've written for numerous lifestyle digital publications, non-profits, and blogs. Some ongoing and past clients include We Are The Mighty, the Filson Journal, Fairways For Warriors, and more.

Editor - United 4 Social Change - 07/2018 - 10/2018

Mentored younger writers with high school, college, or post-graduate experience. As a part of a small team, I helped these students improve argumentative writing with the goals of inflicting positive social change.
