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 spent about 10 years working in the daily news at newspapers, TV stations, and digital news organizations across the country where I covered the U.S. government, the economy, the justice system, and much more.

Digital media consulting

I’ve taken on numerous freelance clients throughout the years to help them 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.
