We'd like to know just a little about who you are and what you're looking for. With that in mind, would you please tell us in one or two sentences what you do for a living?

I'm a critical thinking humanist with an avid interest in creating elegant products that are practical yet technically on the cutting edge. I'm interested in solving problems that make life easier for folks so they can attend to more important things---like enjoying life more.

If it's not clear from your first answer, are you already practicing content strategy in your work?

I am currently in between contracts, but working on several freelance web design and content creation projects. I'm also taking several classes in UX design, usability, marketing analytics, and color theory. My goal is to find a full time job as a content strategist/usability specialist/web writer for either an agency (specializing in large/medium/small clients) or inhouse at a medium-sized internet company.

Could you tell us what you're hoping to gain from participation in CSNYC?

I would like to socialize and network with other folks working as CSs in the industry. There are a lot of extremely talented, fun, intelligent, and geeky folks working in this area. I'm also interested in finding a collaborator to write a book with me.

Last question. Any ideas about how you might contribute to this group and/or to the field in general?

A couple of thoughts in this regard: 1) I would be happy to offer volunteer services (e.g., write up a newsletter; present a talk at a venue, etc.) 2) I have a few book ideas in mind (as of yet, don't really want to disclose the subject matter until I've fleshed the structure out a bit more) 3) I would love to help other folks find positions. Network.

Introduction

Hello--my name is Rose Reynolds. I've been a professional writer for roughly 15 years. During that time I've been a technical writer, content manager, project manager, copywriter, editor, information architect, and content strategist.
