I am a politics and civil litigation reporter with experience writing in multiple formats including print, digital, long and short form, technical and creative writing. I have a variety of work experience ranging from customer service to communications writing for state agencies. I have excellent experience in the automotive field, manufacturing and technology, and writing for not-for-profit organizations. I received my education through a unique program offered by California State University, Sacramento, where I studied journalism and government. I was trained in all forms of journalism and creative writing. My writing style is flexible and adaptable to my customers desires. The vast amount of work I have done follows AP Style closely. This includes hundreds of articles on complex legislative or litigation based off public record that I write for a general audience. I have done quite a bit of technical writing, such as creating product descriptions for websites using SEO techniques and have experience creating brand messaging and developing communication strategies using print and social media. I have even written cooking blogs and have experience with photojournalism. The skill I possess that makes me a good writer is my ability to research topics quickly and efficiently, identify stakeholders and develop written pieces tailored to the relevant interests. I strive for factual, accurate and correct writing and hold my work to a very high standard. I will not write something that cannot be verified, unless I am writing an opinion piece. Today's journalists often lack the skills to write non-biased articles that are factually accurate, free of opinion and interesting to read. These are skills that were hammered home through my education. Beyond my writing skills, I have worked as a mechanic, manufacturing, database input, customer service and even as a chauffeur. My interests are broad. In my free time, I enjoy restoring classic cars, gardening, cooking and working with my dogs. I spend a lot of time outdoors and always take an opportunity to get outside. I hike, sail and ride skateboards. I am as happy in the desert as at the beach or in the mountains.
