Argentine-American storyteller based in Appalachia

Why Work With Me?

Whether I'm writing your story for major media, your website, or personal use, I treat everything you share with care.

Here is a selection of work I've done for and about people over the years:

Feature stories and profiles

Bios

In 2015, I developed a new storytelling approach for a U.S. Department of State initiative, which hosts yearly international exchange programs focused on women's empowerment and disability inclusion.

My approach included creating professional statements and bios for each participating member. I wrote each profile from the 2015-2018 editions of Empower Women and Sport for Community.

Here are some of my favorites:

  • Aline Silva, Olympic wrestler and first Brazilian to medal in a wrestling world championship
  • Tashi and Nungshi Malik, Indian mountaineers and the first sisters and twins to climb the highest peak on each continent
  • Paola Wera Kuri, Mexican social entrepreneur and women's sports advocate (my ESPN story on Paola)
  • Ksenia Ovsyannikova, Russian wheelchair fencing champion
  • Patrick Selepe, South African tennis official and Paralympic youth development officer
  • Bayron Lopez, president of the Ecuadorian Paralympic Committee and professional wheelchair racer

Unpublished and other work

  • Centro Hispano CEO Claudia Caballero hired me to work with her to write six scholarship application essays for her admission into Vanderbilt's Executive MBA program. She was awarded a full scholarship and featured on the university's website.
  • New City Kids COO Jeremy Jerschina hired me to write several biographical pieces for him as he transitioned from executive director of the organization into a C-suite role. These pieces included a letter defining his new role, a transition/introduction letter to the organization's staff, and a short bio for the organization's website.
  • Travis Powell, owner of TP Properties (Keller Williams Realty), is a prominent Knoxville real estate agent (he is also my father-in-law). For the past two years, we've been working together on a memoir about fatherhood and the lessons he learned after his teenage son passed away in 2018. The book, titled "Called to Be Lane's Dad," will be tentatively published in 2022.
