About me

Growing up into the digital age I’ve seen stories evolve and the English language turned on its head over and over again. Who could have predicted we’d be using the word literally to mean figuratively and that our vocabulary would expand to include pictograms? ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

But that’s the beauty of language. It’s always evolving, and unexpected trends are the norm. Especially now, because internet.

My approach

There's a lot more to UX writing than just the writing.

I begin with research to understand users' mindset, desires, and fears. I explore industry trends and competitors and work closely with stakeholders to understand business goals.

Then I establish conventions for voice, tone, and style to create consistency across the entire user experience.

After all that, the writing can begin. But UX writing isn't just copywriting—it's designing. Sometimes UX writing is knowing what not to write. It's all about bringing the right message, to the right people, at the right time.

My story

I have been a language nerd for almost as long as I can remember. From creating a secret alphabet with my best friend in 3rd grade, to learning Esperanto for fun in high school, to studying Ancient Greek and Latin in College, I've spent a lot of time thinking about words and grammar.

My experience working in customer service, office administration, and human resources allowed me to practice creating positive experiences in the real world. Digital user experience is the same in a lot of ways.

As a UX writer, I combine my passion for language with my expertise in optimizing user and customer experiences.

My interests

I like TV. I probably watch too much of it and am always up for a lively discussion.

I like to read. Some of my favorite books at the moment include:

  • Saga – Brian K Vaughn
  • The Lord of the Rings – JRR Tolkein
  • His Dark Materials – Philip Pullman

I love music. Some music that I make includes:

  • I sing with Supruli, NYC’s Georgian Chorus. გაუმარჯოს!
  • I have some very low-fi recordings on my YouTube channel
  • I can play the guitar a little, and I dream of learning the hurdy gurdy
