I write for myself as often as I write for clients.

BECAUSE FOR ME, PAIRING CURIOUS WORDS TO CREATE INTRIGUING CONTENT AND EXCITING NARRATIVES IS A BREEZY, ENRAPTURING EXPERIENCE.

JUST M MAGAZINE

Just M is a forthcoming ezine for Creatives. It combines visual storytelling and aesthetic narratives to share inspirational, entertaining, and how-to content best suited for content designers, visual communicators, and creative enthusiasts.

SCHOLARLY / ACADEMIC

As a grad student, I’m required to prolifically write essays, papers, and other scholarly content for my concurrent masters degrees. While I’m occasionally asked to write for my Illustration MFA, the large majority of my writing is more for my MA in Media Psychology, where I compose paper after paper covering the cognitive impacts and implications of technology and modern media today.

AD COPYWRITING, TOO

For more than 20 years, I’ve authored micro and long-form content that ignites interest and inspires action on behalf of clients.This includes development of original and brand-aligned content for use across digital campaigns, social media marketing, or ads on print or web.

MY BLOG

As time permits in between client and grad school work, I journal my work and life adventures as a budding illustrator, content designer, self-publisher, and career transition as a media psychologist.

MARKETING DESIGN

For more than a decade, if not more, I’ve longed to author a book. Or two. OK, fine. The truth is that it’s more like many books πŸ™‚ … but life took many twists and turns and those publishing plans had to be put on hold. Until now. I’m presently in the middle of book writing (marketing and design subjects), but will share more on these exciting endeavors as I get closer to the finish line.

PERSONAL JOURNALING

Another writing project that’s been in the works includes my personal development backstory, highlighting an imperfect yet steady “life uplift” working through trauma and recovery. This is a labor-of-love project without any hard deadlines; I work on this set of writings (and illustrations) as I’m able, from time to time.
