Welcome to my 2020 writing portfolio. You’ll find a mixed bag of articles here. I write mainly for B2B audiences about digital marketing and business topics, but I hate to be pigeonholed, so don’t be surprised to see different topics and B2C writing, as the year progresses. Here’s my bylined work for 2020. The current tally is 75 articles (not all of them published), plus a more than 15 ghostwritten articles and a couple of white papers.
I joined the Tuts+ instructor team last year, which is a good fit for me given my teaching experience. My work here includes tutorials on business software and resource roundups, but there are also articles I’m proud of on diversity and gender equality:
