“Angie grasps the art and science of creating content that spreads better than anyone I’ve ever worked with. Her understanding of how to motivate people to spread important messages—via writing grabby headlines, editing copy to a crisp, or designing graphics that screamed to be shared—is unmatched. And Angie does all this with a sharp sense of humor and keen political instincts that made her a great teammate to learn from and work with. Any project she gets involved in is exponentially more likely to succeed.” – Garlin Gilchrist, former National Campaign Director at MoveOn.org

“I absolutely loved Angie’s dedication, work ethic, and her ability to think on her feet. Her work as Editor-In-Chief, Writer, Social Media expert, and activist has always amazed me. She was the key to our team’s success when the project was at its zenith, and she always had a clear vision of where we needed to go.” – Brandon Weber, formerly of MoveOn.org and Upworthy.com

  1. Hi Angie,

    Do you do day rate projects? A friend, Peter Bell recommended you, I need someone approximately a 4-8 hours project, maybe a little more, I need to put down some rather personal details on paper, it has been a very emotionally taxing process, I am need this done in the next couple of weeks. If you don’t do such projects, i’d really appreciate a recommendation. I need be able to verbally describe my experiences to the freelancer, they must have good communication skill and a compassionate listener is a plus. It’s not a long term project as i said, I believe it can be done in a week. maybe 4-8 hours or so.

    I’d also appreciate if you can tell me your rate. Thanks again.
