Welcome to my portfolio!

I'm a skilled communicator and a results-driven researcher with an ever-growing curiosity. I've been in digital and print content creation for the last three years, and I've got a diverse body of work to show for it. Writing affords me the invaluable opportunity to meet passionate people, explore interesting places and share little-known stories with the world. I love what I do, and I trust you will too.

Pinup Star Lisa Love’s Homecoming at GARR 2017

El Paso native Lisa Love first broke onto the rockabilly scene back in 2007 when she started entering pinup contests throughout the nation. Compelled by the glitz and glamour of 40s and 50s-era women, Love developed an affinity for vintage clothing, makeup and hair trends. Her remarkable beauty, refined stage presence and impeccable attention to detail made her a predominant figure in the pinup world, earning her a coveted partnership with world-renowned rockabilly pillar Viva Las Vegas, and a revered place among the best models in the industry.

Sun City Roller Girls To Ram and Jam at Rockabilly Riot

Since 2008, the Sun City Roller Girls have been bringing beauty, brawn, and all-around badassery to the El Paso sports scene. Known for its rough-and-tumble nature, roller derby pretty much eviscerates the stereotype of women as docile and passive. These women are hell on wheels. “You’ll be amazed at the hits that go down,” said league co-founder Teresita Lopez.

Shots Fired | Acid Pie Returns with Watergun

Borderland band Acid Pie first came on the scene in 2012 with their debut EP It Makes Me Feel Like . . . With their gritty chords, swift percussion, and gripping vocals, the group quickly gained a following in Juarez. Their unabashedly retro-yet-relevant feel earned them a nomination for “Best Garage/Punk Album” at the 2013 Indie-O-Music Awards, as well as a record deal with El Paso’s own Electric Social Records in 2014.

Laura Turón’s Paradox

In an unassuming warehouse, quite literally off the beaten path in Mesquite, New Mexico, artist Laura Turón works meticulously on her latest project. Turón is known for her signature mark-making work, usually displayed in large-scale, single-plane installations. Her current canvas is a conspicuous dissention—it’s a retired school bus that she scored for a pretty great deal on Craigslist.

Engagement & empowerment in East Savannah

TIMOTHY KING, like many local minority youths, grew up in the marginalized community of East Savannah, an unsung sector of the city known for its rough conditions. “It was normal at the time,” he reflects. “The violence, the gangs, the drugs . . . you have a lot of exposure to those kinds of things pretty early in life, so they don’t tend to be as alarming.”.

About

Chantel Baul

I'm originally from Savannah, GA, but I relocate here and there as military folks often do. I recently married an active duty infantry officer, and I serve in the Reserves as an HR officer as well. Aside from the army life as an army wife, I am totally driven by an affinity for composition. I value the writing craft because it is an essentiality of human communication. I incorporate my appreciation for rhetoric into my professional work and am avidly looking for opportunities that allow me to continue to do so. I have experience in technical editing and proofreading as well as freelance journalism and blogging. My overall goal in all of my efforts is to continue to learn and improve upon myself, and it's happening everyday.

Thanks for stopping by!
