Hi, I'm Rebecca! I’m a writer, editor and design geek. 

UX writing

  • These days, I work as a UX writer and content strategist for the University of California, Davis.

    • I’m helping to redesign the content of our homesite.

  • I’ve also worked as a UX writer for Esurance.

    • I clarified insurance jargon.

    • It was a lot more exciting and fulfilling than you’d think.

Copywriting

  • I've done copywriting and content marketing for brands including Indiegogo, Adobe, Zendesk, and InVision.  

  • I’ve been a (semi-successful!) full-time freelance writer for a total of 9 months.

    • I learned how to stay self-motivated and highly organized.

 
 

Who Am I?

 

Journalism

  • I was the Managing Editor of Communication Arts magazine.

    • It’s an international publication covering graphic design, photography, and illustration, since 1959.

    • Editing the magazine was like a crash degree in design.

  • I worked as the Arts & Culture Editor at the Sacramento News & Review. 

    • I wrote about — and ate — as much food as they let me.

    • I loved editing and training new writers.

  • I got my master's in digital journalism at Columbia University.

  • I worked as a freelance writer and teacher in Mexico City for almost a year.

  • I've had reporting stints at The Miami Herald, Napa Valley Register, and Mother Jones.

Habits

  • I tinker with copy until it's chiseled to perfection.

  • Whenever I'm not writing, I sew
