As a freelance writer with more than a decade of experience, I’ve written all kinds of content, from technical white papers and buyer’s guides to more creative content such as e-books and articles. And I’ve written for all kinds of clients—from business to high-tech.
In addition to my own clients, I have worked as a consultant for over eight years with a communications firm whose focus is on the high-tech industry and includes Fortune 500 clients. In this capacity, I not only write content for the firm, but also assist with content strategy and and project management. I have managed entire projects, including managing other freelance writers and working closely with graphic designers to deliver high-quality and relevant content. This experience has given me particular insight into the client-side of working with freelancers and has helped me to cultivate the best qualities of a freelancer in my own client interactions.
Prior to working as a freelancer, I worked as a Community Relations Officer (aka a Public Information Officer) for the town of Avon, Colorado and as a Communications Director for the non-profit organization Great Old Broads for Wilderness. For both organizations, I transformed their websites, increased their website traffic year-over-year, and grew their email lists by up to 20 percent. In these positions, I also wrote successful grants for large transportation and engineering projects as well as environmental projects.
My academic background is in writing. I hold an MFA in Creative Writing from the University of Utah and have published several stories in literary journals. I bring these same storytelling skills to my professional writing—creating content that is as engaging as it is informative.
Copywriting Expertise in Technology
I have spent the last several years working closely with high-tech companies on writing projects with a specific focus on firms in the audio visual, software and hardware industries. In fact, about 90 percent of the work I do is in high-tech business-to-business marketing content. I am an Infocomm-Recognized AV Technology Specialist and am currently working toward becoming an Infocomm Certified Technology Specialist.
What does this mean to you?
It means I have the technical education and knowledge to quickly gain an understanding of complex technology and to communicate easily with your SMEs. I create content that is accessible, educational and relevant for your target audience, whether they are IT specialists, engineers or executives.
