Candace Bryan


I grew up in Memphis, Tennessee where I spent the first 18 years of my life listening to Elvis and eating (vegan) fried chicken and barbecue. After high school, I moved to Annapolis, Maryland and studied philosophy at St. John's College.  

After graduating with my B.A. in 2012, I moved to New York City to follow my dream of becoming a writer. Since then, I've been living in the city realizing my dream in ways I never expected as a freelance writer, content strategist, and occassional stand-up comedian.


Here's a photo of me with my esteemed colleague, Martin.



I have a wide array of digital content experience. I've worked extensively as a freelance writer producing original reporting, opinion writing, and a healthy amount of blogging, too.  I'm also a published children's book author!

I've worked as an editor, acting as a consultant to develop editorial strategies and oversee site design, as well as writing and editing digital content. I've been a content strategist, developing social media media plans for organic and paid campaigns, live events, content promotion, and influencer programs. 

I've also done some fun social media odd jobs as a contractor, including managing a paid YouTube campaign for a big brand and running a Facebook campaign for a political nonprofit.
