My name’s Melanie. I’m a writer and content strategist.
Currently, I’m a Content Strategist in Razorfish’s Austin office. I help our clients plan and create compelling content for their digital channels.
> Rackspace Hosting
I served as Senior Content Strategist for rackspace.com. In that role, I helped plan, write, edit, and maintain content for the website.
I wrote technical documentation (user manuals, API docs, and UI copy) for control panel software for Linux servers. I also managed a team of technical writers.
For four years, I worked as a copywriter for this venerable consumer electronics catalog, as well as its website.
> RELEVANT Magazine
RELEVANT has published several of my artist interviews, reviews, and even a devotional article.
> Foreword Magazine
I wrote book reviews for Foreword (and its Clarion service for self-published authors) for seven years.
> Highland Lakes Business Journal
When I lived in the Texas Hill Country, I wrote articles about local businesses, which were published in this newspaper. I also researched and wrote articles for its sister publications, The Picayune and The River Cities Tribune.
> Aether Logistics
This now-defunct software company specialized in creating custom applications for handheld devices. I got to learn lots about software development when I created a complete user guide from scratch. I also wrote use cases and other internal documentation.
