"Content is King". Whether you're a large corporation, a publication, a small business, a personal brand, or a public figure, high-quality, dynamic, engaging, original content is the key to edge your brand out in front of the competition. I am the writer who can provide that for you.


I am an experienced journalist, editor, content creator and copywriter with writing published in newspaper and magazine formats. Additionally, I wrote, produced and reported local, national and international politics for a live radio news broadcast in Los Angeles. My writing began to be published while I was an undergrad. After graduating from UC Berkeley, my first experience as an editor was for Hillary Clinton when she was writing a weekly nationally syndicated column. Currently, I run my own writing service — The Cherie Bomb Editorial Services.

I have additional experience in politics and entertainment. Having worked for the LA County Board of Supervisors as they ran the 5th largest economy in the world, I had the opportunity to collaborate with Senators, members of Congress, and heads of state. My role focused on issues affecting women in LA County. After politics, I worked at 20th Century Fox in their top television department with the A-list in entertainment and media. The experience of working in high-stakes politics and for a legendary "Big Six" movie studio and media giant elevated my writing to new levels, while rewarding me immensely from the hands-on experience of working side by side with renowned captains of industry.

WRITING RANKED AT THE TOP OF GOOGLE'S FIRST PAGE

I call myself a Word Coder because I use writing—my words—to get Google's Artificial Intelligence "Rank Brain" algorithm to index my content on the top of their first page search. With more than 4 million blog posts per day vying for a top, first-page ranking, Google indexed my writing at #2—just one slot below #1 Vogue—and above the Madison Avenue journalistic juggernauts Vanity Fair, Harper's Bazaar, Wall Street Journal, Elle, Town & Country, and Huffington Post when writing about the same topic. 

In 2013, MTV online added my hip-hop infused “Round-Up Of The Week In Politics” for their nationwide content as “Top Story of the Day” viewing it as a way for politics to resonate with young people.

In 2017, my descriptive storytelling-style writing was used to create the movie poster theme for the National Geographic documentary LA92, which won an Emmy, and was on the top 10 short list for a 2018 Academy Award  nomination. 


Running my own writing and editing service has led me to write for law, real estate and design professionals in Los Angeles whose clients include LeBron James, Lady Gaga, John Legend, Charlie Puth, Meghan Trainor, Puffy Combs, Wolfgang Puck, Paul Marciano of Guess, superstar music manager, Troy Carter, and ultra-luxury real estate developer, Mohamed Hadid (father to supermodels Gigi and Bella), as well as global conglomerate brands like DuPont.


Although an independent contractor, I am lead copywriter for a branding agency whose clients include L.A.'s professional sports teams, the Lakers, Dodgers, Clippers and Kings, as well as popular brands such as Jack Daniels, Warner Bros., Starbucks, Bacardi and Ford. My role is to help IDLA foray into the realm of personal branding by providing sophisticated, original content for their clients' websites, including personal bios, About pages, brochures, speeches and more. 


I'm also the founder and editor-in-chief of The Cherie Bomb, an online magazine focusing on original stories that highlight unique and progressive insights on culture and politics, while featuring cutting-edge science, music and style profiles.

COVER STORY for NEW CITY MAGAZINE: Young Leaders Point Kids in a New Direction

My article earned the cover of New City Magazine | Copies of the publication have been acquired by Stanford University for their historical archives. | As an undergrad, for two years, I was a paid journalist/reporter at this multilingual magazine highlighting inspiring, empowering stories from the Latino, Armenian, Vietnamese and Russian immigrant neighborhoods of Los Angeles. Every story in "New City" was translated into Spanish, Armenian, Vietnamese or Russian, ensuring that immigrant readers were not excluded from the stories about their communities.

MTV online added my hip-hop infused personal website's Round-Up Of The Week In Politics as their “Top Story of the Day”

"Guru’s Jazzmatazz: It’s Time To Mellow And Lounge After A 24-Hour Ride On The American Political Rollercoaster." MTV online added my hip-hop infused personal website article “Round-Up Of The Week In Politics” for their nationwide content as “Top Story of the Day”, which they viewed as a way for politics to resonate with young people. My blog article rounded up the pivotal events of the week including, The Supreme Court's decisions to void a central part of the Voting Rights Act; dismissing the Prop 8 appeal, paving the way for same-sex marriages to continue in California; and DOMA (The Defense of Marriage Act), where the court ruled that legally married same-sex couples would now be entitled to the same federal benefits as married, opposite sex couples. Sandwiched between the SCOTUS rulings, was a section on Texas Senator Wendy Davis' herculean, one-woman, 11-hour filibuster to draconian and sweeping restrictions on women's reproductive rights. Article was fused hip-hop vernacular, enveloped into the mood of hip-hop legend Guru's "Loungin" from his seminal album "Jazzmatazz Volume 1".

A French Style Revolution in The City of Bell Led by a Modern-Day Joan of Arc

From corruption arises justice. From justice arises revolution. From revolution arises democracy. This is the backdrop from which an unknown local resident rose up to meet the overt and shameless corruption in a small town southeast of Los Angeles. In September 2010, eight City of Bell council members were arrested and charged with corruption, accused of embezzling $5.6 million, rigging elections, voter fraud, violation of civil rights and stealing millions more through secreted funds. This narrative has been replayed throughout the ages, but what makes this story different is that the most qualified person — a young woman — who helped lead the uprising just happened to be living in the area at the time of the crises. As Woody Allen wrote for his character “Chris Wilton” in the film “Match Point”, “ … I’d rather be lucky than good… .” Not that Ana Maria Quintana isn’t good, but more importantly, the City of Bell is lucky.

Google Ranked My Article at #2, one spot below #1 Vogue and above #3 Vanity Fair

My personal blog article, "Street Style: The Carolyn Bessette-Kennedy Look" earned a "First Page Google Ranking" at #2, one spot below #1 VOGUE and above the Madison Avenue journalistic juggernauts VANITY FAIR, HARPER'S BAZAAR, WALL STREET JOURNAL, ELLE, TOWN & COUNTRY and HUFFINGTON POST when writing about the same topic. ** Article held the #2 spot for five years, from 2013 to 2018 ** Some people aren't sure how this is important. Here's a rundown on why a Top, First-Page Google Rank is an accomplishment that is hard to earn: With more than 4 million blog posts per day vying for a first-page ranking, Google's complex and ever-elusive "Rank Brain" algorithm indexed my writing at #2 — just one slot below #1 Vogue — and above the Madison Avenue journalistic giants mentioned above. I held steady the #2 spot, under Vogue magazine for an unprecedented five years, from 2013-2018, and over the world's most well known and highly marketed fashion publications. The ranking is given by Artificial Intelligence, so it is not biased by human factors. So with over a billions websites, and millions of post per day, Google believes you're the best in the world for this topic if they place you on Page 1—because no one goes to Google's Page 2. There are thousands of articles written on "How to rank on the first Google page" and "Proven Method to Ranking on the First Page of Google", etc. and I am proof that SEO, AdWords and all those “bags of digital tricks” will never replace Good, Old Fashioned, High-Quality, Original-Thought, WRITING. When you write from your heart and sense of truth, rather than thinking of "key words" and SEO, you will find yourself sitting next to Anna Wintour—maybe not front row at fashion week, but certainly on Google's front row!

COPYWRITING | Realtor: My Storytelling-Style Bio Garnered My Young Client Her 1st Million-Dollar Sale.

COPYWRITING: My Urging To Tell A Story Vs. Writing A Corporate-Style Bio Snagged This Young Client Her 1st Million-Dollar Sale! (Provided all written content for this personal branding website) | This is one of my favorite corporate pieces because it has a Cinderella aspect to it, as well as a few life lessons about following your dreams and trusting your instinct. Joanna Segoviano, young and new to the real estate game, was among several real estate agents vying to be hired by a seller with a million-dollar property. The seller interviewed several agents, but with less than two years in real estate, Joanna was sure he’d choose one of the industry veterans who'd already had many complex million-dollar sales under their belts. She was amazed when she got a call from the seller letting her know that he selected her! He said, "It was your bio that got you the job." After much back-and-forth discussion with the branding agency I work with, I made a case for it being crucial that Joanna's bio mention her goal of becoming mayor of Los Angeles one day, and how this lofty goal drives her pursuit of excellence in everything she does. Not only did the seller hire her, he told he had worked for decades in politics and was a key player in electing the late Tom Bradley, one of Los Angeles' most beloved mayors, and that after the sale, he would introduce her to all the L.A. politicos she needed to know in order to build her way to becoming mayor of Los Angeles. Congratulations, Joanna!

The 'Rumours' Are True: Bruce Cockburn on His New Memoir

(Editor for this Rolling Stone magazine article) When many artists visit New York, they stay at downtown hotels like the Mondrian or the Bowery. Bruce Cockburn stays nearby at the Soho Holiday Inn. In town to launch his new memoir, Rumours of Glory, with a concert and book signing, the iconoclastic singer-songwriter arrives in the lobby wearing a modest outfit of black pants, black combat boots and a long black coat. "This is not your standard rock & roll memoir," Cockburn writes in the book's preface. "You won't find me snorting coke with th
