about me

Hey there!

Hey, I’m Jovi! An experienced writer, web designer, WordPress geek, graphic design nerd, and just generally a pretty JOVIal human (see what I did there?!).

From Word Docs to WordPress: I’ve been writing for public audiences for more than 10 years. I started off as a spoken word artist based out of Sacramento, which eventually landed me a gig as a live radio show host and news journalist. I’ve done freelance work in both prose and poetry, and most recently I’ve ventured into the world of tech writing. The first website I built was my own in 2008; as a performing artist, having a user-friendly and aesthetically pleasing website was an absolute must. Since then, I’ve built a variety of different sites for a wide range of clients and I had a blast with every single one!

“Talking about art is like dancing about architecture.”

Testimonials

Cha'Quitta Hutchison

Jovi was tasked with the redesign of our website, vdaysacramento.org. They did such a great job that we retained their services to handle all of our multimedia needs, including logos, flyers, programs and graphics for the merchandise we sell at events. I found them to be very knowledgeable, reliable, and detail-oriented. They did a great job of managing our priorities and meeting deadlines, staying attentive to our needs while working on other projects. In an organization run entirely by volunteers, it’s hard to find people who are dependable to take on the things that require a significant amount of time or skill. We loved being able to give Jovi a task and not have to worry about the quality of work we would receive and whether or not it would be done on time. Jovi was a lifesaver! We hope to retain their services again for the next season.

Jace Huggins

Jovi is one of the most creative and compassionate people you will ever meet. They maintain a positive outlook in every situation, is great at customer service because they is able to empathize extremely well and makes people feel heard. Jovi is hard working, dedicated and extremely talented at helping people see things in a different light.

Rebecca Voorhees

I can’t think of a positive quality that Jovi does not posses. She is everything you would ever want in a coworker and/or employee. I can say without a doubt, she was one of my favorite people I have ever worked with. I worked with Jovi over a 2 year period on a large-scale textbook design project. Her position at the time was photo researcher. Every interaction I had with Jovi was extremely pleasant. She consistently went above and beyond and worked very quickly. Jovi is a problem solver, is very insightful, and continuously looks for ways to improve efficiency. I could go on and on about what a wonderful and dependable person Jovi is, but the best way to sum it up is that anyone who ever has the opportunity to hire or work with Jovi Radtke is extremely lucky. She is overall just fantastic!

David Coffey

Jovi is a great collaborator and has great ideas for free-form writing as well as within a structure, like song writing, for example. She has an expert command of the English language and is one of the most creative and enlightened people I’ve ever worked with in collaboration of creating art.
