I've written product descriptions, blog posts, and newsletters for the Little Red Cup. We don't send newsletters very often, but when we do they're ususally effective and I enjoy putting them together Here's a recent one.
Beyond the tea company, I've helped friends as needed, and just finished a stint doing SEO focused copy-re-writing for L.L.Bean.
In the last couple years I've written about Allen's Coffee Brandy, eating my way through Quebec's Cheese Country, about the Cryptozoology Museum down the road, and, most recently, about how I wished I did more writing.
Without irony, that is the last major piece I've done.
"When I was a sophomore at Colby College I decided that the best way to stay in Maine was to become a generalist.
The choice to generalize has guided the trajectory of my professional life, and to that end I’ve worked broadly as a sort of jack-of-all digital trades. I have built and maintained websites, brought clients to the social web, written for print and web publications, and produced audio and video podcasts.
Because of this mixture of professional capacities, I have a hard time characterizing myself as a web developer, a writer, or a photographer.
I like to say that I am useful."
I usually don't say that I was a raft guide, that I bake all the bread my family eats, or that my sense of humor veers dangerously punny, but these things are true as well.
