Are you a college student honing an entrance essay? Are you a professional trying to land your dream job with the perfect cover letter, or a budding author looking for feedback?

I'm a freelance political journalist by day, but by night (and a few business hours) I'm here on TakeLessons helping writers find their voice. We'll talk about whatever you're working on and make it better — from help with the basics like grammar and style to deeper feedback that helps you convey your big ideas. Every writer has something important to say, and I'm here to help you find the words.

I've written about members of Congress, environmental disasters and big-money elections for outlets like VICE and The Daily Beast and newspapers in multiple states. I'm excited to write with you!

"When it came time to apply to graduate school, I wanted to express every ounce of appreciation for public health – except I struggled with transferring much of that admiration into writing. I could easily call up experiences and memories during conversation, but to fashion them into a fluid essay remained a tall task. This is where Nick really shined. We spent hours talking through these experiences with a focus on harnessing their emotional footprint. It took some open-mindedness, plus the will to resist the inertial tug of old habits, but with Nick’s help I was able to write from a place of passion for the first time in my life."
