Freelance Writing & Fashion Blogging

Over the last four years I have been a freelance writer for articles in both print and digital magazines. I also ghostwrite blog posts, articles, and book chapters for small businesses in need of editorial assistance.

Beginning in 2013, I became a regular contributor to The Beer Connoisseur Magazine. I have researched and crafted more than a dozen articles ranging from 400 to 2500 words. I have worked on both their print magazine and their digital format, as well as their website. In addition to the articles, I created nearly two-dozen recipes for The Beer Connoisseur Magazine and took nearly all the photos published with my articles. The relationships I have developed with the editors at The Beer Connoisseur Magazine continue to this day.

Ghost writing is a natural extension of my freelance work. I work "behind the scenes" with small businesses who seek to grow their brand through different media outlets. My experience includes writing and editing press releases, blog posts, book chapters, and articles. In addition, I can provide assistance with social media to help broaden a company's reach and bring in new clients and readers.

I also maintain Petite Over 40, a self-hosted fashion blog that uses Wordpress to manage the content. Maintaining this blog exercises my writing skills in unique ways and pushes me to grow. Through this work, I have learned to navigate both Wordpress and Squarespace. Not only do I write the articles for the blog, I take most of the photos and promote my posts through social media outlets, such as Facebook and Instagram. This brings traffic to my site and creates a relationship with my readers.

Technical Illustration

For 18 years I have been the Technical Illustrator for a patent law firm in Seattle that specializes in patent prosecution for Fortune 50 tech companies. I have created thousands of drawings for patent applications, all adhering to the guidelines set forth by the Patent Office. These line drawings can be as simple as a flow chart to demonstrate a process, or they can be more complex graphics that visually illustrate a mechanism or piece of hardware and how it functions. I work in Omnigraffle Professional but clients receive a PDF file of the finished product.
