Hi! I'm Elisa, thanks for stopping by.


I'm one of those insatiably curious people who processes the world through words and story. I'm a poet, novelist, occasional actress, full-time nerd, and enthusiastic copywriter. 

Since graduating Scripps College in 2011, I've worked for tech startups and nonprofits. I moonlit as a dating advice columnist. I volunteered for half a dozen political campaigns in three states. These experiences, and my flexible worldview, make me adept at adapting my writing to a brand's needs. I'd love to help you tell your story.

Companies I've worked for include:

  • Zulily

  • Chasing Fireflies

  • PicMonkey

  • Richard Hugo House
