Brittney's most extensive experience includes research papers, blog posts, webpage copy, and news articles.
The bulk of her current freelance work is casual blog posts and informative articles; she has also produced web copy for three new companies, working closely with clients to turn their life stories and business strategies into compelling, to-the-point websites.
In addition to blogging and writing poetry, Brittney B. spends her free time taking photographs, interacting with animals both wild and domestic, catching up on celebrity gossip and international affairs, reading contemporary novels and poetry, and researching her own genealogy, which she can trace back to the sixteenth century in both Scotland and the Netherlands.
She was a competitive figure skater and swimmer well into her teenage years, and she continues to follow both sports avidly. She also returns to her birthplace of Chicago, Illinois, regularly and enjoys making observations about the cultural differences between the northern U.S., where most of her family members still reside, and the southern U.S., where she spent most of her childhood and still lives today. Her favorite place in Florida is Sarasota, where she lived near the beach for five years and loved every minute of it. She has also been on eleven different Caribbean cruises, and loves exploring the lesser-known parts of tropical islands and countries.
Brittney studied British and American literature at Florida's honors college, New College of Florida, before transferring to USF Tampa in 2010. She graduated magna cum laude with a Bachelor of Arts in Creative Writing. She plans to pursue an MFA in Creative Writing.
Brittney B. has several regular clients in the entertainment industry. Her most common assignments include celebrity gossip stories, resource guides for dancers and actors, and overviews of TV shows and channels.
Brittney has penned dozens of film, show, and album reviews for both newspapers and newsletters. In January 2014, she wrote about the most anticipated TV shows debuting or returning that month (she was particularly excited about Community's fifth season, and will now stubbornly continue to hold out hope for a sixth).
Brittney also spent two and a half years writing and editing surveys about TV shows and commercials. She completed high-urgency assignments during two Super Bowls and two Olympics for major corporate clients, working closely with marketers and researchers to write copy about their advertising campaigns. She knows how to write plausible, easy-to-read content about virtually every subset of the entertainment industry, from sitcoms and serial dramas to movie trailers and cast member press junkets, and she enjoys all of it.
Brittney's favorite automotive topics are Tesla and tempered glass, and she currently contributes to a website that explores eco-friendly fuel alternatives. Her writing and editing experience includes web copy for dealership websites, extensive car and truck reviews, previews of experimental prototypes, recall announcements, surveys about national and regional advertising campaigns, and blog posts about everything from windshield repairs to custom upholstery.
Home living is one of Brittney's specialties. She loves coming up with frugal and eco-friendly design tips, and her regular clients include apartment rental websites, interior design companies, and home goods stores.
