My name is Cathy Chatfield-Taylor, Freelance Writer and Principal of CC-T Unlimited. My career spans more than 25 years in marketing communications and magazine journalism for AEC firms and technology companies, with a side trip into meetings & conventions.

After earning a bachelor's in English and environmental science from Allegheny College and a master's in magazine journalism from Syracuse University, I gained early work experience as a technical writer and marketing copywriter for consulting engineers and software developers.

I became a freelance writer in 1989 to help professional service firms develop dynamic print materials. Over a six-year period, I wrote dozens of articles for trade and corporate magazines, helped launch five newsletters, and researched and wrote targeted marketing brochures.

In 1995, I joined EXPO magazine as editor-in-chief to report on the meeting and convention industry. I also wrote content for the launch of the magazine's website, produced the magazine's first technology issue and developed a guide to industry websites as an advertising supplement.

Following my interest in the web, I became a senior content developer for HNTB's Technology Group in 1997 to work on websites, interactive multimedia programs and digital video productions. I led development of two award-winning sites.

In February 1999, I relaunched my freelance business with an emphasis on writing compelling content for content marketers. I now spend most of my time writing trend stories, case studies, white papers and web content for engineers, architects, contractors and technology companies.

What I enjoy most is learning about content marketing trends and applying what I’ve learned. Since 1999, I've completed more than 275 assignments for 110 individuals in 60 organizations.

I recently relocated from San Francisco's East Bay to the Palm City / Stuart / Port St. Lucie area on Florida's Treasure Coast, just 40 miles north of West Palm Beach. My clients are located from coast to coast.

As a member of the International Association of Business Communicators (IABC) for 15 years, I served at the chapter level as communications director, public service committee chair and program director for independent communicators. I am also a former member of the American Society of Journalists and Authors (ASJA).

Cathy Chatfield-Taylor On a personal note, I live 25 minutes from the beach, near the south fork of the St. Lucie River. Seeing palm trees and wading birds from my office window is a pleasant diversion -- occasionally a distraction. I share the office with my cat Harry P. and dog N. Tonks, who sometimes participate in conference calls.
