Summary of Experience
A writer and grammar nerd since the age of ten, Michelle has written for a variety of publications on a wide range of topics. While was born and raised in the Bay Area, she's also spent time in Yorkshire, England - the exact climatic opposite of California - and earned a graduate degree in English from the University of Leeds. More importantly, she polished up her writing skills in the birthplace of the language, and her time there has been an experience that has changed her for the better.

Freelancing has always been her life goal, but it's notoriously difficult to get into. If she were going to do it right, she knows she'd have to depend on more than her talent. Every day is a new adventure in learning, and expanding her skill set.

Projects by Industry
Auto

All written for YourMechanic, a Mountain View - based automotive resource site, the articles written were dedicated to a variety of automotive topics, including car seat safety, paint and detailing, do-it-yourself car care, and how-to guides on parts and components. Short of offering actual mechanical advice, Michelle researched and verified each topic carefully to compile guides that were easy to read, understand, and utilize.

Projects by Asset Type
Blog Post

Michelle blogs for a design company and the websites that they build for clients, in a wide range of styles on a variety of topics. Social equity is a prevalent focus, but she is flexible enough to work with pretty much anything within reason.

Projects by Writing Style
Conversational

Michelle additionally works for a small, successful design company here in California, and one of the websites she blogs and creates content for for is devoted to equality and anti-bullying, amongst other topics of social equality. It's been a privilege and an honor to be writing about such important topics, and she's devoted most of her time to continuing to do so.

Humorous

At Champion Up North, she wrote for a publication geared primarily towards young adults in the British pop-culture scene, which meant music, movies, politics, and social justice. It meant using a more relaxed, and admittedly more crude and bombastic style, but it was often well-received by this particular demographic.
