  • Renata has been a freelance writer and mixed media journalist for more than twenty years.
  • She's contributed to pop-culture and entertainment sites like CBR and Ranker, as well as handcrafted SEO for Vivial Media and small business blogs.
  • She's also performed spoken word at legendary venues like "Da Poetry Lounge" in Los Angeles, and provided technical expertise for TV shows such as A&E's "The Ride That Got Away."


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.


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.
