I have extensive experience in the areas of communication, design and video production. I currently work part-time as Communications Manager for an Oregon non-profit based in Eugene. I write, design and manage the publication of a variety of materials for any campaign or event (brochures, fact sheets, flyers, ads) and the semi-annual newsletter for the organization. I edit the articles for the newsletter, which are usually written by the Exec. Director or other program staff.
My writing experience includes 3 blogs and a number of newsletter articles for my current employer, Beyond Toxics, a successful fundraising letter for a human rights non-profit; a feature film screenplay (Sweet Life); a two-act play; a few short stories; a variety of educational video scripts and a great many essays and opinion pieces, some of which have been published.

I keep the Beyond Toxics WordPress web site: BeyondToxics.org fresh and up-to-date with organizational and issue-related breaking news, then track metrics via google analytics. I write, design and launch e-news alerts via the CRM designed for non-profits: SalsaLabs/Engage, which includes a broadcast email service much like Constant Contact. I write and distribute press releases for important events and program initiatives and make follow-up calls to my press contacts. I also serve as a valued editor of blogs, editorials and promtional material and as assistant event planner for the organization on an as-needed basis for key projects, programs and fundraising events throughout the year.
