As the URL might suggest, my name’s Mel G. Cabral. ;)
I’ve worked as a content marketer since 2015, most notably for SlideGenius, Inc. as their Creative Writing Manager.
I’ve also been a freelance writer and editor since 2014. I’ve worked with Hinge Inquirer Publications, Summit Media, and Reach Unlimited. Some of my ghostwritten work has been published on Engadget and The Huffington Post. In 2014, I also worked as an editorial assistant for the prestigious Ateneo de Manila University Press.
I started my writing and editing career when I took up an MA in Creative Writing at U.P. Diliman in 2012.
But before I began a career in writing and editing, I started out as a freelance artist and graphic designer since 2011, though I started drawing commissioned portraits since 2003. I worked as a graphic designer for a small ad agency when I graduated with a BFA in Visual Communication from U.P. Diliman in 2011. I also worked as an art teacher for kids (and kids at heart) in 2013.
As you might be able to tell by now, I like to work on both the visual art and writing side of projects. ;) I have a passion for helping people distill their ideas into the best possible output possible.
I’ve been putting pen and pencil to paper since I was three years old, and I don’t think I’ll ever stop… even if today it’s more like pressing keys on a keyboard and putting a tablet pen to a digitizer. :)
