The Story

Hello, my name is Erik Christensen, Principal of Studio Lexicon, and I love to write. It is as simple as that.

I have over 16 years of experience in the Architecture, Engineering, Construction, and Development industries as an architectural designer, architectural project manager, and strategic planner. While working as a strategic planning consultant for large-scale development projects, I honed my professional writing skills on technical reports, executive level reporting documents, and PowerPoint presentations. I have encountered a diverse array of clients during my career. As a result, I learned to write for academic, institutional, health care, life science, software, state and local government, architecture, preservation, facilities, real estate, engineering, construction, and development audiences.

Regardless of your industry, I can create dynamic business narratives for you and add value to your communications.
