Writer, editor & media professional

Hello there!

I'm Mike Peterson. I'm a writer and editor based out of San Diego County. 

My background is in print journalism, both in the writing and editing and the page layout spheres. I've been a reporter with daily news outlets and digital media companies, as well as an art director for various weekly print newspapers.

I'm currently available for any and all freelance writing or editing work. My specialty is short and succinct prose, so I'm well-versed in the news story, magazine feature or press release. However, I can write pretty much any type of content. Additionally, I'm also an adept copy editor, proofreader and fluent in both AP style and Chicago.

I'm also a member of the Editorial Freelancers Association and a 200-hour Registered Yoga Teacher with Yoga Alliance.

In my spare time, I enjoy yoga, making music, craft beer, and exploring things that aren't the internet (I think most people call it the "outside"). I'm a person of many interests, and one of my biggest hobbies is trying to fit all of my passions into one lifetime.
