Life as a full-time freelancer is a pretty awesome gig.
I work two primary ways:
1. I'm hired directly by small or medium businesses. Usually folks bring me on because they recognize their website isn't really communicating what they want it to, or they need someone to keep their blogs and newsletters fresh. I help with content strategy, consistent voice and messaging, and collaborate with designers on websites, ad campaigns, product copy, social media, and more.
2. I work as part of a creative team for marketing and advertising agencies both here in central Texas, and for a variety of national clients.
