Experience

Renata's lifelong love of the written word started in Elementary school with creative writing, poetry, and award-winning Toastmasters speeches. She launched her journalism career in 2001 covering live events for Raver's Digest, an underground magazine based in Los Angeles. Since that time, Renata has submitted custom articles and photography to a myriad of publications spanning automotive, home improvement, health and wellness, pop-culture, and entertainment. Being a mechanically inclined writer has given her the ability to provide instructional articles to magazines like Auto Restorer and The Speed Girls, act as a technical consultant on-set for The History Channel, and add a unique spin to entertaining features like listicles about TV, movies, and comic books. When she isn't writing, reading, or glued to a screen, Renata enjoys working on cars while cosplaying, exploring the great outdoors, and training her Norwegian Forest Cat.

Education

Renata holds certificates from Universal Technical Institute and College of the Canyons in Automotive, Welding, & Fabrication Technology. She's also taken courses at College of the Canyons in Communications and Journalism.
