Sarah Gonzales is an award-winning writer, broadcast producer and web designer
Hi there, I’m Sarah. Let’s work together!
Currently I’m the Senior Copywriter at PicMonkey, a photo editing and design software company, and just before this I helped to build the Intuit QuickBooks Community as a Content Creator. There I wrote dozens of articles about entrepreneurship, small business and told the stories of fascinating entrepreneurs. Previously, I was the Executive Director of the Content Producers Guild, a non-profit media production company I founded to support the award-winning radio program I co-created, Kids These Days! as well as the work of other independent media makers. In another lifetime in Los Angeles I worked at actual print magazines like Ms. and Variety, and began freelancing as a fixer/field producer with the BBC and other international production companies which I still do sometimes.
I graduated from the University of California, Berkeley earning a degree in English Literature with a secondary focus in Chicano Studies while living in San Francisco. During college I worked a variety of odd jobs — not on my resume — but important to shaping my young self nonetheless: housecleaner, home health aide, video store clerk, script reader, apartment manager, swim instructor, assistant at the UCSF urology department and job coach to developmentally disabled adults.
Now I live near Seattle (momma’s a rolling stone) and enjoy book clubbing, collecting Latin art, watching true-crime mystery shows, drinking wine while fishing, road tripping, inventing new business ideas, growing flora and spending time with my husband, two adorable children and pair of black lab pups.
Secret superpowers: Good in emergencies, remodeling houses
Weaknesses: Cheese, Netflix, online shopping
