About John Montey

Thanks for visiting for my site!

Johnmontey.com runs on a commercial WordPress theme I redesigned to showcase my content management and multimedia skills. The lighthouse you see above is an illustration I made of the Portland, Maine Head lighthouse, which best describes my personality. The message I want to get across is that I’m a bit dark and mysterious, yet soft around the edges.

You’ll find mostly web and graphic work featured in my portfolio at the moment. In August 2015, I graduated from the University of Southern California with a master’s degree in Professional Writing. My hope is that I’ll be adding more published works to the portfolio and news about my writing to the blog. I’m working on being less mysterious about my creative writing. I’ve been having fun writing under a pen name for a while now and plan to make some changes with that.

Please enjoy the site and feel free to contact me via the information provided below. Cheers!

Skills

Seasoned Editor & Digital Publisher

10+ years experience publishing with WordPress. Started out just for fun to relieve stress from working long hours as a litigation assistant. Turned my hobby into a career by transferring my attention to detail and editing skills to digital media.

What I Write

Trained in journalism, nonfiction, fiction, stage and screen (master's concentration), and the graphic novel. Proficient in Chicago and AP Style Guides. I'm a firm believer in a multi-genre approach to writing. Anyone who loves the written word can master any genre with practice and dedication.

Web Properties You Can Get with Me

Have executed responsive web designs and the development of WordPress themes, HTML emails, popovers, welcome mats, icons, and animated banner ads. I have also managed the production of widely-read blogs.
