I’m Ashley: a 28-year-old Filipina American writer and creative professional based in the Chicagoland area and the writer of one of Simu Liu’s favorite reviews of his book. When I’m not writing, I’m likely tuning into a (Chicago Bulls) basketball game, watching a Marvel movie or TV show (probably Captain America or Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.), listening to Broadway musical cast recordings (West Side Story orchestrations have my heart), or reading a (comic) book.

Professionally, I am a copywriter, freelance writer/journalist, and content creator. I specialize in sports, pop culture/entertainment, feature stories, and blog posts but am also available for basic graphic design, custom lettering, photography, and other creative content work.

Writing professionally, however, hasn’t stopped me from continuing to do it as a hobby. Writing is more than just a profession to me; it is part of my identity, so I like to write about my interests and to use writing to help me sort through emotions and difficult situations.

This site contains my professional writing, design work, photography, and personal blog posts about my interests, life, and more.
