Every day it’s different. I could be writing for any number of industries, like transportation, trucking, national parks, marinas, federal or state agencies, universities, luxury products and destinations, travel and tourism, chemicals or textiles, software, technology, internet service providers, distribution, franchised businesses, heavy equipment manufacturers, alcoholic beverages, restaurants, healthcare systems, legal, retail, consumer packaged goods, grocery and convenience stores, insurance, banking and more. Some topics are more fun than others, obviously, but engaging with and learning about the variety of subjects I get to cover is one of my favorite aspects of professional writing.
Agency-based digital content writing as I have experienced it requires constant creativity and adaptability. Especially in my current role, a writing assignment could be anything. Sometimes it’s highly technical and requires thousands of words. Sometimes it’s cheeky and just needs a handful of them. Sometimes it requires extensive interviews, travel and in-depth research, and other times it’s written off-the-cuff for a short deadline. Often, however, it’s somewhere in between.
A lot of the time, I’m writing web content, but I also write scripts for short films, or AI conversations for interactive technology like Alexa skills, chatbots, games, apps or VR environments. Call me a content writer, a copywriter, a technical writer, a content strategist, a user-experience writer or content designer. I’ll answer to all of them, but I think “professional writer” covers it pretty well. Whatever I’m writing, I strive for versatility, accuracy and effectiveness, reveling in the challenge of finding the right words for the job. Here’s a collection of some of my work.
