Well hello!

MY NAME IS MICHAELA AND I'M A FREELANCE WRITER HERE TO HELP YOU TURN YOUR CREATIVE PASSIONS INTO A CAREER.

I’ve tested the waters in enough straightforward, predictable career paths to know that the life of adventure that comes with a creative career is more my speed. Turning art into a way to make a living is no small feat, but it's a worthwhile one.

If you're a creator, whether your personal brand is also writing or something entirely different like painting, photography, graphic design, event planning or interior design, I’m sure you can relate.

Here are some of the questions you're up against:

  • Where do I even start?

  • How do I get experience when many jobs or internships require experience to apply?

  • Do I need a degree? 

  • How do I build a portfolio?

  • Should I freelance or work for someone else?

  • Am I good enough? How do I get better?

  • Is this the right career path? Is it my calling? What even is a calling?

  • What if someone else is already doing what I want to do?

  • Does this work make an impact in the world? Does it even matter?

  • Am I the only one with these questions? 

Let me answer the last one right now: No, you're not the only one. I'm right there with you! I've either been there before or am still facing some of these. I'm compiling everything I've learned along the way of this adventure and sharing the expertise I've picked up from the inspiring creators around me, too.

I’m here to remind you your dream mattersNone of us creators tell the exact same story with our work because none of us see the world the same way. 

That means the world is missing the creative work you have to bring to the table.

So let's get you unstuck and get your work out there!

  1. I’m a Jesus follower. I credit my gift of writing to Him. Since it’s a gift from Him, my goal is to use it for Him. All the glory belongs to God. 

  2. I’m a Myers Briggs fanatic, and guessing people's types shortly after I meet them is my special talent. I’m an INFJ. What about you? Actually, don't tell me so I can guess.

  3. I’m from the most landlocked part of the country – the Midwest. I will say we have great hiking and amazing sunsets here, but I take every chance I get to visit the ocean.

  4. Speaking of hiking, spending time in nature is my favorite. I also love biking, preferably with a speaker playing the oldies (or Taylor Swift) in the basket.

  5. If you want to read some of my published work, feel free to check out my portfolio. One of my proudest accomplishments in my career so far has been landing an interview with an actor from Outer Banks. You can read the article about him there!
