I’m a freelance writer, editor, and photographer living in Asia. I specialize in writing textbooks for ESL materials, but I’m also an experienced copywriter, travel writer, web-content writer, and blogger.
When my time isn’t occupied by professional gigs, I can usually be found in the studio or out on the streets snapping photos.
Oh, and I travel, a lot!
You can read about my travels in several print and online publications, but to understand how I got started on the road to becoming a publishing professional, you should really stop by my Asian travel web site, My Several Worlds, which was launched in January 2007.
That’s where it all began.
Since then, I’ve launched five more travel-related web sites, all of which bring in a steady monthly income to fund my travels in Asia. I’ve also lent my blogging expertise to dozens of other web site launches and web site redesigns.
I’m working on several projects at the moment, one of which will involve a large-scale redesign of my community photography web site, Taiwan Photographers. With over 1,200 members, we are easily the largest online community of photographers, videographers, and models in Taiwan.
Taiwan Photographers was instrumental in helping me develop my own skills in photography. A cursory look through my photo library reveals my propensity for nature, landscape, travel, and strobist photography. Most of the images that you see here are for sale through FotoMoto.
Professionally, I’ve spent the past two years working at an international publishing company in Taipei, where I worked on dozens of ESL magazines, books, and textbooks. I’m also a voice over artist with more than eight years of experience under my belt.
I’ve devoted an enormous amount of time and effort into meshing all of these interests into a lifestyle that allows me to travel whenever and wherever I want. People tell me I’m a jack-of-all-trades, but I’m really just a girl who believes that inspiration can be found in anything and everything.
In May 2010, after a lot of careful consideration, I decided to leave work in order to pursue a full-time freelance career in writing, editing, photography, and blogging consultations.
Some of my most recent work has been featured in Travel and Leisure Asia, Unearthing Asia magazine, Hip Compass Escapes travel magazine, and Wandering Educators. I hope you’ll take a moment to stop by my portfolio page for more information about my writing style.
