About Me

Hey, there! I’m Amanda.

I like writing about advertising, culture, human rights, diversity, technological advancements and poop. But I’m pretty much up for writing anything – except franchising. Please, gawd, not that.

Here’s some stuff about me that you probably didn’t know:

  • I like exploring abandoned buildings in my spare time. I call this activity “Industrial Hiking.”
  • I’m writing a collection of poems called Trailer Trash about my own experiences.
  • I believe Harry Potter saved my childhood.
  • I didn’t meet my dad until I was 22.
  • I also didn’t learn to ride a bike until I was 22. Looking back on it now, that was a pretty big year for me. You can check out my essay about it here.
  • I have seven siblings.
  • I can sing the whole alphabet backwards, drunk or sober.

If there’s anything else you wanna know, just ask!

You can shoot me an email at mediamandamail@gmail.com or follow me on social media.

“When I asked Amanda whether she would be up to the task ofwriting high quality, long form content for us, she said it would belike a walk in the park. I was very skeptical. The next day I had anarticle that exceeded all my expectations. Since then she’salways delivered, I can’t recommend her highly enough!”

“A terrific writer/editor with infinite SEO knowledge, her solid background in internet marketing helped direct the copy team toward higher and more ambitious goals. She is an exceptional coordinator, communicator and, most of all, motivator who truly leads by example. Her confounding positivity and good humor (on a daily basis) are traits that simply can’t be taught – and rarely exhibited so consistently by people in management positions.”
