A Bit of Show & Tell

Who

Hi! I’m a content strategist at Content Strategy Inc., a consultancy in Vancouver, Canada. I’m also a freelance technology writer.

I’m passionate about helping organizations get their content in good shape – so when you get to their site, you say, “That’s exactly what I was looking for!” and not, “Sheesh, what a useless mess.”

Degree: Bachelor of Arts
Major: Communication and
Interactive Arts and Technology

… And Practice

I come from a background of communication, tech writing, and design. (And now I work at the intersection!)

I’ve helped a variety of organizations with content and communication, including non-profits, local government, a world-class physics lab, and a university.

Portfolio

What’s a creator if you can’t see any of the work he or she made?

I’ve dabbled in videography, photography, graphic design, UI design, game design, web design, sound design, animation, industrial design… and most of what I made is pretty good… for an amateur! Give your design team a hug: it’s a hard job (something I appreciate first-hand!).

The stuff I’m really good at has always been writing.

Writing

Some of the most useful writing I’ve ever produced is available at MakeUseOf.com, where you’ll see pieces of mine like:

I’ve also written a little about content strategy.

Jess Loves…

I am passionate and curious about the world of science, technology, media-literacy, DIY and maker culture, sustainable community building, design, dialogue, education, and feminism… and more.

I am also a lousy gardener, a wannabe-beekeeper, and I crochet and program a little.
