What brought me to Bungie was the feeling of standing on a precipice, watching the old gods die. It's the same emotion that gripped me after putting down Frank Herbert’s Dune for the first time, that accompanied my first glimpse of the Halo ring, that shivered down my spine when I saw Destiny's Traveler: what I’d just experienced had moved me irrevocably.
As the Editor-in-Chief of Styleforum.net, I excelled at both telling and editing stories in multiple mediums across numerous channels. In addition to crafting, commissioning, and editing all of Styleforum's content, I developed strategies that resulted in a 1300% increase in social growth, acted as a liaison and representative for a community of over 200,000 registered members, and managed all email campaigns and marketing initiatives. I worked with industry-leading sponsors to create and present content that satisfied an incredibly discerning user-base, and scheduled and hosted in-person member events across the country. Over the course of my professional and academic career, I have edited and written copy for press releases, email campaigns, social media content, software training flows, long-and short-form articles, and narrative pieces both fictional and non-fictional.
My academic background means that I am a rigorous editor with an eye for formatting but a flair for creativity. I am familiar with all major style guides, have experience overseeing and editing freelance and partnered writers, and excel at concise, crisp, and clear editing that's respectful to the writer while maintaining brand voice. My various roles have required me to juggle multiple projects and deadlines simultaneously, to manage in-house, commissioned, and third-party content of all kinds, and have necessitated both individual creativity and collaborative work, both in-person and remotely. One of my greatest strengths is in stripping away the chaff that often confuses narrative writing, and I pride myself on being a firm but flexible editor and communicator.
In addition to being an accomplished manager of communities, social media channels, brand identity, and messaging, I am an established member of many Destiny communities and have been a devoted Gunslinger since Destiny 1. I understand Destiny's universe, I understand the subject matter, the underlying themes and mythographies, and I understand the community as well. I have the combined experience of editing, content creation, and sheer creative power necessary to communicate the wonder of Destiny to both players and partners, and to ensure that Bungie's messaging remains unique, magical, and of the highest standard. I can't wait to get to work producing content that will swell the Tower's ranks with Guardians and expand Destiny's reach.
Thank you, and I'll see you starside,
