Cedar Mill Communications is a great resource for a wide range of services that have to do with communications and putting your best foot forward. These include strategic public relations, writing, editing and translations. We’re also spending a lot of time helping clients with social media projects such as podcasts, blogging, and social media press releases.
Here’s a bit of background about the two main players.
Mary Dickinson Edwards: Mary’s varied career began in junior high school when she decided to pursue a journalism career because she liked writing better than algebra and blood made her queasy. She went on to earn a degree in communications from California State University Fullerton where she graduated cum laude. She’s worked for daily and weekly newspapers as a reporter, editor and copy editor. For five years she operated a Unix book publishing company, doing everything from copywriting to managing printing to selling books to clients around the world. A three-year stint in Germany led to teaching English (and striving to learn German) and editing documents written by non-native English speakers. Mary has a passion for the written word and an antipathy for errors.
Brian J. Edwards: A writer and marketing and public relations professional for 25 years, Brian has a knack for understanding the most complex technical issues and writing about them for any audience. Also a Cal State Fullerton grad, Brian’s worked in newspapers, high tech trade publications, public relations and marketing. He opened Waggener Edstrom’s first overseas office in Heidelberg, Germany, where he hired and managed an international staff of eight for three years. Brian’s fluent in German and the language of computers, cars and virtually anything with an engine or chip.
