I have been a professional writer and photographer since 2007. I went to the University of South Florida and majored in Mass Communications with a specialization in Magazine Journalism. Go Bulls!
I focus mainly on Tampa Bay area lifestyle topics such as charity events, trends, restaurant and bar reviews, movie reviews and much more. I like to tell the story of the events and the people behind them.
Presently I am a freelance writer for several local publications in Tampa including, The New York Times Website Tampa.About.com , The St. Petersburg Times, tbt, Tampa Bay Weddings and Tampa Bay Metro. My national publications include The Examiner, Young Money Magazine and Yahoo! Contributor Network. My past publications include Metromix, Style Magazine, The Tampa Tribune, Focus Magazine (Brandon, New Tampa, Plant City, Lakeland and East Pasco), and Real Health and Image Magazine.
My current active blogs are The Famous Ashley Grant and Tampa Bay Freebies. My past blogs are We Are Full of Bull and The Photographic Times.
My rate for photography is $50 an hour. Prints and negatives are extra. I do offer discounts to charities. Writing project fees are priced on a case by case basis. Contact me to inquire.
