I am a content designer, so I make digital products easier to understand through an empathetic lens. Guiding the user through their journey with ease and creating clear content so the user can digest complex ideas is my main purpose. My speciality is crafting copy to create successful mobile and web-based products. Primarily my tasks have been to turn complicated language into plain English, but I also have experience writing long-form content, scripts, micro-copy and instructional copy.
