I am a 29 year old from the United States, currently living near Oslo, Norway. I received a bachelor's degree in Technical Communication from Boise State University and have worked in the software industry for nearly 10 years. My career began as a QA contractor for companies such as HP and Microsoft, however, I've primarily worked with startups for the past few years. I prefer working in startup environments because there is a better sense of teamwork and I've gained many additional skills by taking on tasks that would normally not be a part of my job responsibilities at larger companies.

My education in Technical Communication has helped me develop skills related to effectively communicating technical concepts to a diverse audience, which has also proven to be helpful in my career working in startup environments. Overall, I've had a very rewarding and exciting career where I've had the opportunity to work alongside and learn from some incredibly talented founders, engineers, and marketers.

I've worked for two years as a part time freelance digital content consultant for smaller companies to help maximize their online visibility. This has included writing content, SEO optimization, call-to-action creation, and trends analysis. I primarily use Hubspot with these companies so I'm fairly comfortable with it.
