Hello! I’m Caris Cruz. I write about things that inspire hearts to be braver and kinder. My passion? To tell a great story. To connect humans to a narrative. That’s what words are meant to do: to echo a message loud and clear, to linger, to leave a mark and a beautiful memory. Reading should be a transforming experience.
I work as a freelance writer and offer exuberant content support to small businesses and startups on a mission to do good. My mission: to cultivate words for passion-driven businesses eager to make this world a better place. And no, it’s not about the glossing things over. I think the story is about you — an entrepreneur, a creative genius, or a beautiful human being with something to tell. You want to share your journey. You believe in your product and there’s a market out there who will share your vision.
My goal is to help you explore the possibilities of finding and building your own community through well-researched, hearty content
I’ve had the honor of writing for these brands:
Folk + Follow | Claret Rondel | Cyclomundo | Wild Wagon Co. | Karma Kiss
