I'm a digital storyteller and content creator. If it involves crafting compelling content, I'm in.  Because content can be created in so many different ways, I've cultivated versatility. My experience spans a broad variety of content types--everything from academic papers to blog posts to tweets and more. As a multimedia content creator, I'm an experienced photographer who has also created videos and podcasts.

I started my career in the nonprofit arena, working for a museum across the marketing, fundraising and curatorial disciplines. While originally hired as a researcher and marketing copywriter, I quickly spanned disciplines to generate $225K in general operating income through grant writing, cultivated donors and worked with lending institutions to acquire $780K in artifacts, and I curated an exhibit on manned spaceflight. Versatility continues to be a theme in my career.

Topics

Writing-wise, I have experience with covering topics as varied as:

  • Higher education
  • Women in business
  • Global entrepreneurs
  • Urban development
  • The sharing economy
  • Digital communication strategies for nonprofits
  • Healthcare and the Internet of things
  • Digital estate planning
  • Internet culture
  • Seattle artists and attractions
  • Aerospace history

With my training as a journalist, if I haven't yet written about a topic, I'm well versed in research to get up to speed quickly and hit the ground running. I'm especially interested in working with individuals and organizations who are focusing on positive social impact efforts.

Experience

My experience spans the nonprofit and for-profit sectors, client-side and agency environments, B2B, B2C, and in-house, freelance and volunteer work. Everything from Fortune 500 companies to small start-ups

Education

I'm a firm believer in lifelong learning. Having earned a master's degree in journalism from the Medill School of Journalism at Northwestern University, I decided to earn another master's degree to broaden my skills. My second master's degree is in digital communication, earned through the Communication Leadership (Comm Lead) program at the University of Washington.
