Since 2017, I've been writing for Nelson Cash in Portland, Ore. A good friend of mine alerted me to the vacancy, and I leaped at the chance to inch through the wintry mountain passes of Montana in a Uhaul. Towing a car. With a cat. In the dark.
My clients include Google Fiber, Mercari, The Tech Museum of Innovation in San Jose, FiftyThree, and The Wild.
From 2010 to 2017, I worked at Olson, in Minneapolis. Someone fell in love with my weird hot dog blog
and I was hired, and now I'm a senior writer. Highlights: Writing and directing a film spoofing The Bachelor
for our company holiday party (due to multiple copyright violations I cannot post this, but ask me to show you sometime in private. Unless you're a lawyer); reigning as queen for a whole year (this is real, and it's actually hard work); making tons of friends. This is also where I really honed my chops as a presenter.
Before Olson, I was freelancing. Boy, did I ever love writing on my own schedule, but the hustle eventually took its toll. How do freelancers ever give themselves a vacation? I will never understand it. Highlights: Blogging and vlogging on behalf of Blueberry Muffin Tops Cereal at Pax East in Boston in 2010 (I interviewed Wil Wheaton, and it was mildly funny!
I also wrote all the web copy for Blueberry Muffin Tops. There were a ton of other clients, too, but why would I talk about them when I have the Blueberry Muffin Tops feather in my cap? Also, I just want to write "Blueberry Muffin Tops" over and over. Apparently, Blueberry Muffin Tops cereal is what gamers eat? And gamers have a very high tolerance for absurdity, so they're a very fun audience.
