Introduction

Jeremy Ogul

Greetings! My name is Jeremy Ogul. I’m a 23-year-old freelance writer based in San Diego, Calif.

This website serves as my personal blog, my professional portfolio and the primary public point of contact for me on the Internet. Generally speaking, I use my blog to discuss issues that I find interesting, especially when I feel I can present an original argument or angle. It should go without saying that any opinions I express here are in no way intended to represent the views of my employers or clients.

I completed a bachelor of the arts degree at UC Davis in March 2012. My major was political science; my minor was expository writing. I gained substantial experience as a writer and editor at The California Aggie, the daily, independent student-run newspaper at UC Davis. I began my freshman year as a news writer for the city desk, eventually working my way up over the next three years to city editor, opinion editor and managing editor.

As a freelance writer, my work has been published in U-T San Diego (as well as the San Diego Union-Tribune back when it was owned by the Copley Press), the Californian (in Temecula, Calif.), Seedstock.com, FastWeb.com and Patch.com.

In addition to freelancing, I am a professional blogger and social media manager for an independent insurance agency in Davis, Calif. I also volunteer as a member of the communications staff for Delta Lambda Phi, an international social fraternity targeted toward gay, bisexual and progressive men.
