Hire Me!

I am a culture writer who specializes in providing engaging content for the blogs of companies large and small. With over 200 posts published, I’ve covered such topics as film, book publishing, and international cuisine for print and digital venues. For corporate clients, I concentrate on telling or elaborating on the stories they use to communicate their values, products, or services. When necessary, I’m comfortable creating keyword-rich content that will read naturally. Below are a few samples of my work.

Based on SEO and marketing needs, I write about film production and Hungarian culture for Budapest’s Flatpack Films. In its first year, the blog helped triple the traffic to the site, and delivered first page search engine results in relevant keywords, beating out much larger companies. Sample posts:

For film production company PPM, I also wrote posts about film production in Hungary. The blog brought over ten-thousand visits, and supported PPM as it became one of the premier service production companies in Central Europe. This post was talked about enough to be dissected by The Chronicle of Higher Education.

I got my start as a writer blogging about restaurants and street food in Budapest. I helped create and build a readership for chew.hu, a site that earned over 200,000 views. Later along with friends at tour company Taste Hungary, I founded The Hungry Dish, which quickly gained a following with over 1500 organic Facebook likes in its first two months. Sadly, both are defunct, though you can read some sample restaurant reviews below, as well as my contributions to Vice Media’s food channel, Munchies.

Because I am a novelist, I also write about fiction. Here are a few book reviews to prove it.

Here’s a guest post I wrote for the highly trafficked self-publishing site Let’s Get Digital.

If the project is right, I translate from Hungarian. Here are translations of the short stories “The Blake Precept” and “The Devil is a Black Dog” in B O D Y Literature, both nominated for the Pushcart Prize.
