ABOUT ME

It’s the online equivalent of that cherished interview question, “So, tell me about yourself…”

JENNIFER STRAHAN WALKER, M.A.

B2B/B2C Technical Copywriter ~ Web/UX/UI Copywriter ~
Marketing Writer ~ Technical Writer ~ Technical Marketing Writer

I’m a case of right brain meets left brain. Some writers are technical, while others are creative—and then there’s me. I like the geekiness of writing about technology products and technical topics from a marketing perspective. In my last few gigs, I’ve written about enterprise IT solutions for Dell EMC, memory and SSDs for Micron Technology, and consumer computing and corporate programs for HP.

I’m a fugitive from the cubicle police. I spent many years as a corporate copywriter, technical writer, and technical marketing writer, but four years ago I took the leap out of a cubicle and into remote work. I haven’t regretted it for even a minute! I love the quiet and clarity my home office provides.

I thrive on long-distance relationships. I’ve worked extensively with globally distributed virtual teams of content strategists, UX designers, developers, engineers, and project/product managers to deliver user-centric, SEO-optimized content.

I’m flexible—dish out whatever you need me to work on, however it’s easiest for you. I’ve started from scratch using messaging documents and product data sheets, as well performed reduxes on existing copy to distill key messages into a shorter, mobile-optimized format. I’ve worked with long-form copy too, creating case studies, technical marketing briefs, articles, and blogs.

I’ll try not to talk your ear off (but no promises). I love learning new industries (and expanding my acronym vocabulary!), as well as meeting new people (even if only virtually!).

Check out my work samples and reviews. If you like what you see, let’s set up a time to talk about how I can get cracking on creating some great content for you.

WHAT I DO

Other people have nunchuck skills, bow-hunting skills, or computer-hacking skills. Sadly, I have none of those, only word skills.

WEB/UX/SEO COPYWRITING

You have only seconds to grab your digital reader's attention. Make every word count.

B2B/B2C MARKETING COPYWRITING

Your content is a conversation with your customers. What are you really telling them?

TECHNICAL WRITING

When all else fails, users will read the instructions. Are yours professionally written?

TECHNICAL MARKETING WRITING

Give customers a deeper dive into why your solution beats the competition.

EDITING

Get a second pair of eyes before you publish, because errors are embarrassing for your brand.

TOOLS

XML authoring, desktop publishing/graphics, content management systems (CMS), project/workflow tracking and collaboration, basic HTML, basic WordPress
