You can hire Iris Content with confidence: we’ll put our best writer on your project and we’ll make sure the work meets your expectations. (See our Service Agreement for more details.)

Diane Trim

Diane Trim

Co-Founder & Chief Operations Officer

I have three decades of professional writing and editing experience in journalism, technical writing, grant/proposal writing and content creation. I have taught journalism, editing, interviewing and writing at the high school and collegiate levels and I take the bi-weekly AP Stylebook quiz for fun. You’ll find the latest Chicago Manual of Style and AP Stylebooks on my bookshelf, next to a worn copy of Strunk & White and the complete works of Roy Peter Clark. As a co-founder of Iris Content, I am dedicated to providing our clients with outstanding, original content that meets and exceeds our clients’ expectations.

Alecs Ianko

Co-Founder & Chief Business Officer

Professionally, I have been writing for the past 15 years. I started as a newsroom editor and basically went through all the writing areas: from politics to industry, from lifestyle to social. Working for several high-profile U.S.-based companies has taught me more than writing for the web and adapting my style to various client needs, it has taught me how to find out what people want even without them expressing their needs in too many words. I am using this skill now for the agency we co-founded, and hope to make all of our clients happy in the process.

Annie Ianko

Annie Ianko

Co-Founder & Chief Content Officer

I have over 20 years of experience. I’d like to consider myself a Jane-of-all-trades when it comes to content: I have covered everything: I have been a TV news editor-in-chief, a magazine chief editor, an online writer and content manager. For Iris Content I wear the hats of SEO, content marketing, content sales rep, editor and writer. I would like to believe that our still new but very successful enterprise was created with a lot of good intentions and a huge heart, with a special dedication to clients who need help and a good content friend.

Sales Director

You need content? We’ve got content and I’m just the person to talk to you about your needs and our services. I have an MBA and I also work as a health care operations director, so I understand business and marketing needs. Outsourcing some work to agencies like Iris Content can benefit organizations who need a communications department’s services, but don’t want an in-house communications staff. We offer great value, flexibility and outstanding turnaround times. Not sure? Let’s connect and see if we are a good fit for one another.

Bambi Frazier

Marketing & Social Media Expert

I’ve put my skills to good use as a twice self-published cookbook author with a third one in the works.  I can create content of any sort, anywhere, anytime.  As a former television news anchor and reporter, I am skilled in writing for a variety of genres and I have a knack for working thoroughly under strict deadline.  I am especially skilled at writing “short” but can beef up any article appropriately to meet word number requirements.  As a whiz with words, marketing and public relations go hand in hand with my writing abilities.  When my fingers aren’t typing away on my laptop, I love a long, brisk walk or you might find me at home in Washington, DC in my kitchen, baking a homemade delicious dessert with my three girls.

Expert Copywriter

Writing has been my passion and a way to express myself since primary school. I turned it into a career in 2010 when I began my freelance writing venture. I cannot imagine a better way to use my Sociology, Psychology, Sales, and Marketing knowledge and experience or a better opportunity to keep learning and evolving. When I’m not writing, I’m with my husband and our two girls. We read princess stories, play games in the park, cook healthy foods, watch movies, or take long walks along the Danube.

Expert Copywriter

I first ventured into online copywriting in 2008 when I dreamed of trading the routine comfort of my office desk for my first love: writing and wordsmithing. Since then I have been writing for various clients and on countless projects all over the globe. I hold a Bachelor’s degree in Business Management and an M.A. in English Language and Literature. When I’m not copywriting, I dabble in creative writing (poetry and short fiction), attempt to take good photos, and make sure my coffee mug is always half-full.

I’ve worked as a freelance writer over the past 4 years providing content across a variety of subjects because I enjoy writing and I love researching new topics. In addition to freelancing, I worked in a compliance division for 2 years writing internal and external material for the company. I have a Bachelor’s degree where I found my love for business and leadership and put this to work for 5 years in management.  My goal is to write content that brings together valuable information that entices the reader. Aside from writing content I read constantly and aspire to write both fiction and non-fiction. Much of my life revolves around personal development, making the best of each day, and inspiring others to do the same.
