Hi! My name is Melissa and I’m a writer & digital media strategist in the California desert. Thanks for your interest in my work!

Journalism background

I’ve worked in the news business for more than 10 years, including at daily newspapers, TV stations, and digital news organizations. I’ve covered the U.S. government, the economy, the justice system, and much, much more.

Digital media consulting

I’ve helped many clients with their online presence, including national and regional nonprofits, start-up media companies, and creative professionals.

Creative sensibilities

My work has brought me across the country and to many environments, and I’ve had the privilege to work with many other talented and passionate journalists, artists, and activists along the way.
