About Me

amandaAbout me:
I’ve been a fountain of creative concepts ever since the first grade when I won a coveted blue ribbon for “Mountain Scene in Crayon,” my contribution to our school’s art contest. I write marketing copy, travel journalism, and news.  I have more than six years’ experience, two guidebook publication credits, and a number of awards.
