Jamie GoldThanks for visiting my writing site. I look forward to hearing more about you and your projects. Here’s a bit about me.

I had my first byline in a weekly newspaper when I was a high school senior and have been writing professionally ever since. Along the way, I earned a bachelor’s degree in journalism from New York University and a master’s in communication management from the University of Southern California. I also worked on the marketing side of a top 10 NPR station and the Los Angeles Times; wrote freelance marketing copy, and ran a daily newspaper website for Gannett.

In 2004, I traded my silk suits for an orange apron and launched a career in kitchen and bath design at my neighborhood Home Depot. Two years later, I began writing articles about design and remodeling. That was pretty much a given!

Fast forward to today and you’ll find my two books on sale at Lowe’s, Amazon and Barnes & Noble, my articles on newsstands and websites, and my nine-year-old weekly design blog still going! I’m also a Certified Kitchen Designer with a San Diego-based practice, which lends my writing a unique first-hand perspective that few design journalists share.  In October 2017, I was honored by Kitchen & Bath Design News as one of its inaugural 50 Innovators.

You might be more interested in my corporate work, which you can read about here. I’d love to work with you on your freelance writing needs. Please shoot me a note if you’d like to discuss a project.
