Writer Community Manager

I help freelance writers do what they love by providing educational materials, relaying communication to my team, and answering any and all questions that they may have — both about working for Scripted and about writing in general.

Santa Barbara SEASONS Magazine

Culture Editor

I work with the Editor on all editorial publications (SEASONS Magazine, Santa Barbara Visitors Guide, SOURCE Meeting Planners Guide). My duties include editing hard-copy proofs, writing articles (usually 3-4 an issue), fact checking, conducting interviews, clerical work, and helping the art production staff when needed.

In addition to the magazine, I oversee the blog portion of our business (www.sbseasons.com/blog). This involves me writing pieces on upcoming events, local people, and other noteworthy happenings around town. I also supervise a team of eight interns who work primarily on the blog, editing their work and making sure it adheres to our tone, style guide, and audience.

I also work on other publications through our parent company Custom Media Group, Inc., whether editing short sections of the various visitors magazines (San Luis Obispo, Ventura, POLO, and Solvang/Santa Ynez Valley) or writing articles for the publications.
