Hi, my name is Nikki Collister.

I write words at Palolo by day and am a freelance writer and classic rock fangirl the rest of the time.

This is a place for me to share some of the work I'm most proud of.

Journalism & Personal Essay

I'm proud to be a regular contributor to The San Franciscan magazine, and have written and photographed over 80 articles for Hoodline, a hyperlocal San Francisco news publication.

Documentation & Technical Writing

I've built several internal and external knowledge bases from the ground up, using tools like WordPress, Confluence, Zendesk, and Notion. Here's a small sampling of some documentation I've written.

Digital Content & Marketing

I always enjoy the opportunity to combine topical knowledge, visual design, and storytelling, whether it's at the day job or Pacific Crest Youth Arts Organization, a nonprofit I've volunteered with since 2016.

For Fun

Since 2008, I've used my personal blog as a casual outlet for ramblings on music, movies, and pop culture, while occasionally contributing to other online publications.
