A little about me
Lithuanian by birth, American by habit (still trying to blend in in Berlin)
I recently transplanted my life from Washington D.C. to the vibrant and eclectic city of Berlin. You can usually find me in the back corner of my favorite Friedrichshain coffee shop downing flat whites and doing some desperate online shopping to Berlin-ify my wardrobe.
Still, a girl's gotta eat—I currently work as a copywriter at a Berlin-based tech startup and moonlight as a freelance copyeditor and writer. In addition to my regular degree, I trained as a writing tutor at Tufts University in Boston. I specialize in cross-disciplinary writing and in communicating complex topics effectively and clearly.
I edit primarily for communications agencies with nonprofit clients, with a focus on progressive campaigns and strategic communications plans. Previously, I spent over two years working in media and communications for a trade association, covering subjects as diverse as electric vehicles, renewable technology, sustainability, and energy policy.
Short version? I transform convoluted information into readable media. Check out some of my work below.
Simple words on complex subjects.
