I’m a California-born wordsmith working remotely and worldwide. Most people know and praise me as a writer, though I primarily consider myself an editor, a strategist and a storyteller.

Using experience and expertise from a career in journalism, corporate communications at Fortune 100 companies and SaaS, I combine editorial skills and technology as Documentation Lead, Senior Technical Writer and Team Editor.

In a pioneering role created for me, I manage 1,400+ pages of documentation for 150+ products at Automattic, the U.S. tech company responsible for WordPress, which is a CMS used to build 34% of websites; and for WooCommerce, an e-commerce platform that powers 39% of online stores.

I mentor 125 colleagues with technical and creative copywriting, am the last eyes on all public-facing assets, and collaborate with development, marketing, product, design, video, events and support teams. Our website and written processes follow the in-house style guide and best practices I established and continue to update as standards evolve.

At conferences in Europe, Asia and the United States, I give workshops on documentation, remote work, nomadic travel and productivity with the intention of sharing knowledge and raising visibility for women and people of color in tech. And in 2019 I was co-organizer of WordCamp Europe, the biggest WordPress event in the world that set new records for attendance, social media engagement and micro-sponsor ticket sales.

In a past life, I built custom e-commerce stores, contributed commentary to The Guardian, consulted on best-selling books from Rodale and HarperCollins, and wrote a travel guide.

Today, in my free time, I surf badly, cook for friends, take muscle cars on road tripssupport worthy causes and maintain passion projects to honor where I’m from and the people who shaped me.
