Hi, I'm Stephanie.
Here's a picture of me "writing."
That takes a lot of forms lately.
I write: news articles, product announcements, profiles and feature stories. I ghost write thought leadership pieces and corporate blog posts. I write headlines, captions, social media posts, video scripts and more. I also create infographics, charts and other kinds of content.
Ultimately, my aim is always to tell a good story. That could mean telling a story that teaches people things, a story that empowers them, or a story that inspires action. A good story should always keep people interested. I can help you tell better stories!
More about me
I'm a longtime digital-first journalist and writer based out of Portland, Oregon. I've covered consumer and enterprise technology for several years, including AI, cloud computing, semiconductors and more. I'm currently freelancing! I write news stories, as well as corporate content.
Before starting to freelance, I was a senior staff writer for ZDNET, where I covered business technology. I regularly spoke with business leaders -- for written articles, on-camera interviews and during live events -- about the challenges of adapting to the digital age.
Before moving to Portland, I spent several years as part of the CBSNews.com politics team in Washington, DC, providing both breaking news coverage and in-depth analysis of political and policy issues. I covered just about every topic out there, from the presidential elections to FCC regulations. I dove deep into the 2009 health care reform debate, the implementation of the Affordable Care Act, and Supreme Court rulings.
I also covered the intersection of technology and politics for CNET when it was a division CBS Interactive. I covered the 2008 presidential election for CNET, and she provided on-the-ground coverage of the use of technology at Inauguration Day 2009.
Before moving to Washington, I was a general assignment reporter for the Campbell Reporter, a community newspaper in the California Bay Area.
Most of my work appears as published articles, though I have also contributed to video packages, both in front of and behind the camera. I've provided commentary and news coverage for radio stations around the country, and I've delivered live presentations and moderated panel discussions.
Life started for me in San Jose, Calif. I traveled just 40 minutes North to attend college at Stanford University. I love traveling -- to places like Iceland, the Netherlands, Costa Rica, and to visit my extended family in Colombia -- but my fierce love of the American West Coast is unmatched.
Since my husband Jon and I moved to Oregon, we've enjoyed getting to know our Southeast Portland community and exploring local parks with our two young boys. I'm also into yoga, running and frequenting Portland's many delightful donut shops.
