My name is Ali Griego.
I graduated magna cum laude with a Bachelors of Science in Technical Communications from Arizona State University. I also have an Associate of Arts from Coastal Carolina Community College.
My degree in technical communications targets a niche area for writing and editing within the technology and science industries.
I currently work as an administrator for the legal services branch of a Fortune 500 communications company, RR Donnelly.
Previously, I worked as an analyst in the news industry, gathering and assessing leads for four different sectors of clientele including media, corporate, finance and the public sector.
I'm a skilled creative and technical writer. I'm efficient with utilizing AP Stylebook guidelines, national and international style guides, as well as implementing branded style guides. I've always had a natural voice within my writing but with my corporate writing experience I've sharpened my ability to channel a branded voice.
I've created content for the web, writing articles, blogs, newsletters and emails. I'm proficient with copyediting, proofreading and comprehensive editing for overall theme, design and layout of a document.
Before finishing my undergrad, I completed an internship as a professional writer for a Fortune 500 technology company, writing internal communications. From that I gained experience in global communications including Canada, Europe and Asia. I also have experience in corporate event planning and have been involved in communications for acquisitions and mergers.
My journey as a writer began in childhood when I was gifted my first journal. I knew then that I would make it my life.
My professional background began as a freelance reporter for the UNM campus paper, the Daily Lobo. I wrote for the culture desk covering local hot spots, the art scene and breaking news. I've interviewed state representatives, local business owners, college professors, drug addicts and the average Joe. I worked regularly with a team of photographers, videographers and editors to produce content for the web and print within a given deadline.
