How much do I charge?

Not all projects are created equal, so send me your nitty gritty details and I’ll be happy to get you a quote! I typically charge around $30.00 an hour, which means some projects are as low as $15/hr and some as high as $70/hr. Let’s chat more!

Where am I?

Currently exploring: New Zealand

I don’t have a permanent address. I am a location independent freelancer (i.e. nomadic) and work with clients all around the globe as I travel with my husband and creative partner, Dave Myers. If you’re looking for an animator or illustrator, check out his website at The Fool’s Corner.

What's in a name?

I go by Aša (pronounced Asha). It’s a long story and a lovely one, but there is only room to say this: Aša means hope and Aša means truth.

Projects I Avoid

Anything related to: finances, real estate, technology, gaming, entertainment, weight-lifting, and the selling of make-up or jewelry (oh, and I don’t write e-books or romance novels for you, but I’d be happy to edit them!)

Topics I Love

Academia, literary writing, holistic health, relationships, movement arts, education, non-profits, humanitarianism, animal welfare, natural childbirth and natural living, nature in general, outdoor adventure, travel, philosophy, psychology, literature, food, art, sustainability, enviromentalism, advocacy, children and families, fairy tales, biographies and biographical sketches,
