Thanks for visiting! I'm Sandra Barry, and I can help you tell your story.
After more than a decade in journalism and education, I now work as an independent writer, editor, and producer with clients such as Job Portraits (end clients include Google and Pinterest), Tribune Media, The Brenn-White Group, Craftsy (now Bluprint), Rocky Mountain PBS, Guided365, and Bald Move. Running my own business allows me to take on a variety of projects—I specialize in employer branding for tech companies and recruitment marketing for international higher education, but also have experience in news writing, email marketing, curriculum development, and more.
Previously, as a content editor at the fast-growing startup Craftsy, I developed original video and print curriculum in multiple categories and helped launch two key initiatives—short-form promotional content and a new script template—during my first three months on the job.
As an executive producer at KVUE-TV in Austin, I won an Emmy for best newscast, as well as multiple investigative awards for a months-long series about deadly gas explosions. That project, which I launched and produced, eventually prompted the removal of miles of dangerous cast iron gas mains.
The move to Denver for an investigative producer role at KMGH-TV was an opportunity for more deep dives, including an Emmy-nominated series about children put at risk by failures on the part of the Denver Department of Human Services.
And as a consultant at Rocky Mountain PBS, I helped the investigative journalism and production teams reimagine and relaunch the station's public affairs programming and developed a new content management system for broadcasts.
I'm formally trained in both hard copy and online editing, and hold certifications from the University of California San Diego's highly regarded Copyediting Certificate program and the American Copy Editors Society.
My husband, James, and I live in Denver with our two less-than-brilliant but utterly lovable dogs, Beadie and Gus.
