EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

SKILLED COMMUNICATOR KNOWN FOR CONCISE AND TIMELY CONTENT. I successfully combine my obsessions with health, medicine and science with effective and compelling writing, SEO and multimedia production. I turn the academic into the accessible, and have fun doing it. I am adept at multimedia storytelling and Adobe Premier video editing. I work well independently but thrive as part of a team. With minimal supervision, I deliver gripping and relevant copy for web content, landing pages, sales collateral, e-mail marketing and blog posts.

SKILLS

  • Search engine optimization or SEO – getting it right, getting it up front
  • I promote what I produce through consistent social media interaction (e.g., @MedReporter on Twitter)
  • Video — I shoot, edit and upload compelling projects to YouTube and other sites
  • Blog content – sharing the latest advances quickly
  • Multimedia impact: trained to know what work best for print, video and other formats to tell the most gripping story
  • Editing for content, clarity, and conciseness
  • Clear writing and communication based on analytics and other feedback
