about

Crystal Jackson, writer, hiker, dog enthusiast

Before becoming desk-bound, I spent many years on my feet in the service industry where I learned how to multi-task, handle stress with grace, and make a mean martini. My perfect day would include dogs, a hike, and a cool breeze. I was in New York for work, wandered into St. Patrick’s Cathedral and accidentally took a picture of a ghost. I studied playwriting with two Pulitzer Prize winners. I listen more than I talk. I try to bring order to chaos and chaos to order as the situation demands. Though I live in the coastal foothills of central California, I’m available anywhere there’s wifi.

What I love about what I do

The written word is a conduit into another person’s head. A connection between company and consumer; artist and audience; me and you. (Hi, by the way.) Respectful of that relationship, I put thought into every word I write.

I have two decades of meaningful experience creating content for diverse sectors, including hospitality, education, healthcare, performing arts, public media, zoos/aquariums, and public transit.
