Hi. I'm Marina.

 I created The Caffeinated Keyboard-– a freelance writing service and blog dedicated to creating tailored content for dynamic businesses. 


I love writing, coffee, and my dog. As you read this, there’s a decent chance I’m sitting at a coffee shop with my pup, Athena, right now! 


 I started The Caffeinated Keyboard so I could contribute to the success of other small businesses while doing what I love to do– writing.


When I'm not working, you will find me reading at my favorite coffee shop, sitting at the dog park, or watching CBS's Survivor... all with Athena in tow!





My earliest writing accolade dates all the way back to first grade... 

Either my 1st grade self made a good guess or she manifested writing as my profession. 

One thing is for sure, though -- my mom still thinks I'm a good writer. 


“It is not the critic who counts: not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles or where the doer of deeds could have done better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood, who strives valiantly, who errs and comes up short again and again, because there is no effort without error or shortcoming, but who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions, who spends himself in a worthy cause; who, at the best, knows, in the end, the triumph of high achievement, and who, at the worst, if he fails, at least he fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who knew neither victory nor defeat.”

—Theodore Roosevelt
