Polished, ready-to-publish feature articles and custom content writing

Hello! I’m Renee, a writer, editor, and content strategist based in San Francisco. Drawing on 15+ years of freelance experience, I bring a reporter’s research skills and a copywriter’s creative mindset to each new assignment.

For past projects, I’ve tasted my way through Alaska’s breweries, interviewed Sir Richard Branson, crafted ice cream package copy, penned a book chapter about Volkswagen bus owners, and explored five countries on inline skates.

I’ve reported stories for National Geographic Traveler, Sierra, the San Francisco Chronicle, BBC Travel, Via, Zagat, United Hemispheres, American Way, and dozens of other outlets as a feature writer and journalist.

I also work as a freelance content writer, copywriter, and editor. My portfolio includes feature articles, B2B content, annual reports, web copy, newsletters, and more for companies like Buick, Humana, Google, and Pebble Beach Resorts.

A standout contributor and an absolute pleasure to work with.

“During the five years we worked together, I could always count on Renee for compelling story ideas and engaging, thoroughly reported copy that was on time, hit assigned length, and was damn clean to boot.”

– Eric Moya, former destinations editor, Travel Weekly

Renee is that rare reporting and writing powerhouse.

“She uncovers offbeat characters and under-the-radar stories, communicates clearly (and oh-so-pleasantly), and files squeaky-clean copy promptly. Her descriptions are singular and dazzling, and she makes the creation of thoughtfully structured, well-paced, and absorbing stories appear easy. Renee has repeatedly made my job as an editor almost laughably easy. She’s truly a treasure of a freelancer.”

– Katie O’Reilly, adventure and lifestyle editor, Sierra Magazine

One of my go-to luxury lifestyle writers.

“In her work for Pebble Beach and GuestLife Monterey Bay magazines, Renee consistently captures the spirit of place and delivers the perfect balance of context and insider knowledge that makes her stories interesting, informative and, best of all, memorable.”

– Steven Biller, editorial director, Palm Springs Life
