Hello, my name is Lacy Brunnette.
I’m a freelance writer, editor and content producer based in Des Moines, Iowa. I specialize in creating engaging content for fashion, beauty, culture, and innovation industries, and can frequently be found planning parties, hobnobbing at boutique openings, and seeking out convivial atmospheres and ebullient creatives. My work has been published on over 75 websites and digital platforms.
After graduating from the University of Iowa in 2008 with an English degree proudly clutched in hand, I forayed into the business world, starting as a technical writing intern for Global Reach Internet Productions. This began my 5-year corporate life that was heavily focused on technology, web applications, and upcoming SaaS trends. While the daytime tech gigs were laying some heavy duty groundwork for understanding all things internet, I was also adventuring around the Des Moines metropolitan meeting creatives, hustlers, DJs/musicians, artists, designers, bar owners, and every character in between. There was a short stint with the Des Moines Derby Dames, where I rose to short-lived local fame as jammer, Cosmo Disco, and I met my now-husband, Jeff. It was also during this time that I began a journalistic fashion blog and co-founded the indie fashion show series, Accidental Industry Fashion Show.
In 2013, upon realizing that there were some adventures too large to ignore, I left my marketing job to go full-time freelance. Since launching my solo career, I have helped numerous start-ups and established organizations with branded content from copywriting for websites to blog publishing to coordinating photoshoots, as well as diving deeper into media assignments with publications like DSM Magazine, Milk Media, and Lenny Letter. Other projects have included work with companies and organizations, such as Iowa Architect Magazine, Hudson George, Proclaim, KADE, Renaissance Marriott, Taika STROM, and the Des Moines Social Club.
