Hire me

I publish the latest news about the innovation landscape in San Antonio at www.StartupsSanAntonio.com. This dedicated coverage about San Antonio entrepreneurs working in the science, technology, cybersecurity, and bioscience sectors translates into over 400 stories to date since launching in early 2018.

I also freelance regularly for enterprise companies and ghostwrite for busy CEOs and startup founders. I can help you develop a winning pitch, craft actionable content for your website, and even ghostwrite an article in your style and tone of voice.
