About Garrett Mickley


Who am I?

Cyberpunk Garrett Mickley, a white man with short hair standing on a bridge with cars in the background.
It me.

I’m just your totally normal cyberpunk trying to find my way through cyberspace.

Safely and ethically.

Right now, I’m looking for a career change out of marketing.

But I have done lots of other stuff, too.

In my early 20’s I began an over decade long study of digital marketing.

I’ve helped businesses market their products and services from various industries ranging everywhere from iPhone video game companies to major music festivals.

In 2014 I got a Bachelor of Applied Science degree in Video Game Design.

I’ve been published in the 2016 Autumn issue of the 2600 Hacker Quarterly (aff).

My OSINT guides have been used in several professional training courses.

“The primary client grew in traffic by 135% over the next year”

“As director of Digital Marketing for Surgeon’s Advisor, we needed bulk content optimization done for various websites.

Garrett successfully completed his task, and he did so ahead of schedule.

Working with him was easy, as he is a good communicator and an efficient worker, and he handled his tasks with utmost professionalism.

His task took a tremendous burden off of the organization.

His wide knowledge base and his command of his field made the completion of this otherwise difficult task simple, relieving the organization as a whole.

The primary client grew in traffic by 135% over the next year, in no small part to the content optimization that Garrett had completed.

Garrett Mickley has a wide array of talents, from a deep understanding of the technical aspects of the work, such as code, IT, and search engine optimization, but also the ‘softer’ skills, such as written and visual content, marketing, and seeing the big picture.

Working with him is not just to contract out work but to have a partner.

“You get quality work without the hassle of having to check in constantly”

“I always knew I wanted Garrett to write for my site, it was just a matter of finding the right project.

Bringing a writer you hadn’t worked with before onto your site is always a risk, so it’s important to vet them and think about where their voice will fit on your site.

Garrett was a consummate professional.

He delivered his copy on time, it was well-written, accurate and polished, and he made any edits we asked for quickly and efficiently.

It’s always a pleasure to work with writers who listen to feedback and use it to produce a better product.

It helped us launch flagship content for our website that ended up being a success, in part because of Garrett’s efforts.

I really liked the research that Garrett did on the subjects we asked him to write about. Because he had done his homework, he was able to write with authority.

We got really good traffic on the pieces Garrett worked on, and the project ended up being a showcase for a redesign that was central to our overall plan for the site.

I would definitely recommend Garrett’s services.

Garrett’s ability to quickly understand and take ownership of an assignment means you get quality work without the hassle of having to check in constantly, or worse, deal with a blown deadline.

Also a plus: Garrett is really skilled at promoting his work on social media and through careful search engine optimization.

I’d say that Garrett is a creative, experienced writer with a can-do attitude who will take a writing assignment from inception to completion with a minimum amount of hassle on your part.

He’s always willing to go the extra mile to make sure you get the copy you need.”
