Gretchen Holzgang

Copywriter, journalist and over all creative.

I have a degree in journalism from the University of Oregon and nearly 10 years experience working as a published writer. I have worked on staff at such publications as Portland Monthly Magazine, the Portland Business Journal and Sustainable Business Oregon. As a copywriter, I've worked in-house and on contract with clients such as US Outdoor Store and Hello World Design creating web content and writing product descriptions. Additionally, I have marketing and script writing experience with the Walt Disney Company.  I continue to work as a freelancer, with clients including AKQA digital agency where I create editorial content for Nike and Brookbright Media working on academic and research projects. In my free time, I write and illustrate creative stories and poetry. 

While I currently split my time between Portland, Ore., and San Francisco, I also have a passion for travel and allow my work to take me all over the world, including spending time living in New York, Greece and China.
