Writing Experience

Creative Storytelling.

I have a BFA in creative writing and journalism from the University of North Carolina at Wilmington, and I have multiple published articles under my belt with Lumina News and encore magazine. As a professional copywriter, I’ve written sales copy and blog articles for major brands like 7Hills Productions, Boardworks Education, and Audioengine USA. Additionally, I own a writing education website called Melbee Academy where I act as writer and editor.

I’ve written scripts for shorts, educational videos, promotional videos, and worked on a feature film screenplay. One of my scripts was for a short film called Bridge the Gap in 2014 in Wilmington, North Carolina, where Madelyn Cline (Outer Banks) played a role. I’ve also edited the screenplay for the feature film Finding Faith, starring Erik Estrada (2013), as well as wrote multiple scenes for the film.



Whether you’re looking for website content, blog articles, or ad copy, I’ve written it all. With my knowledge of SEO and digital marketing, I’m able to do the necessary keyword research so that your content drives traffic and builds your online presence.


Script Writing

From short films to commercials to YouTube videos to feature films, I can turn your idea into a workable script that captures attention. I use professional script formatting software and practice the latest industry writing standards.
