About Dylan

Dylan is an impossibly prolific and endlessly curious writer based in Seattle, drawing from a content marketing and creative production background. He is an independent worker and jack-of-all-trades with inexhaustible references and wit.

Currently, Dylan writes editorial content for the Today’s Inspiration and Shopping Spotlight surfaces on Pinterest.

He has written freelance blog content for publications like Apartment Therapy, Inflow, Figo Pet Insurance, UX Collective, and Vibemap. His satirical writing appears in Slackjaw, The Needling, The Haven, and Robot Butt.

He plays guitar and piano, propagates houseplants, studies Spanish, knows a little sign language, makes candles, and loves cooking. At various points in life, he has built PCs, manually developed film, dabbled in animation, and otherwise enjoyed a wide range of hobbies and interests. In a way, Dylan’s writing is a product of living a “synthesist” lifestyle.
