Digital Production and Content Management
Whatever form your ideas take, you could use help getting them out into the world. Whether that’s creating digital or print books with your ten-point plan to combat the rise of white nationalism (hint, hint) or crafting 140 characters to launch your new line of zodiac-themed popsicle trays on Twitter, hit me up. Idea development, project management, attention to detail, and execution are my jams. And if you want clever, digestible copy to really underline what you’re after (or someone to edit your own), all the better.
Publishing is for everyone now. The umbrella covers everything from the paper books you hold in your hands to the comment you leave on the video of your friend’s cat sneaking a lick of their birthday cake (even if the comment is all in emojis). And I’m all about those things as well as all the stops in between. I literally went and got a Master’s degree on the subject, acing classes in business and marketing, coding, editing, and design while simultaneously working with a team to produce websites and digital books.
Take a look at the options below and it’ll link you to my portfolio pages. And if you want to see what books I’ve been reading and what I’ve been up to lately, check out my blog (beware: I do like my scary books and movies).
As the digital manager for Ooligan Press, my job was to manage two existing websites and supervise the transfer of another. Web projects employ a breadth of practical and personal skills, including project management, technological adeptness, patience, and resourcefulness. These projects have enriched my understanding of HTML, CSS, and PHP coding languages, improved my problem solving skills, and increased my stamina to see complex projects through to fruition.
Despite reports that digital books have leveled off in popularity, there is still a dedicated audience of readers who keep the demand for ebooks alive. It has been my responsibility to create and oversee the creation of EPUB and MOBI files for each Ooligan Press book during the 2016–2017 academic year. Additionally, I had the opportunity to perform two PDF to EPUB conversions for the PDXOpen project, which provides free downloadable textbooks for scholars worldwide. I am proficient with Adobe Creative Suite due to my experience in creating digital publications.
Compelling use of language and narrative remains the core objective of digital content. My story-driven experience writing web and print copy for businesses, blogs, videos, and social media posts functions to seize the reader’s attention for greater messaging impact. Every book and every brand has a story, and it’s my goal to tell that in the most gripping way possible.
