I'm an NYU Tisch Dramatic Writing Grad who worked for Viacom and magazines during the Great Mens Rag Boom of the late 90's. I moved across America to become the front pages Editor for Bikini and/or Raygun Magazine until 2001 when they tanked.

Post 9/11 I dropped out of the dues-paying game entirely and joined my father in his business brokerage and consultancy start-up.

In 2004 I became the sole Marketing Entity for a Fortune 500 companys specialty powder metals business in Alabama, while still writing and editing Metalsnews. I created their corporate identity, online presence, branding, copy, press, and directed all new product research and development. Four successful years later I resigned.

I need a stringent editor to appear sane, but am a lot of fun at parties and ALWAYS get work in under deadline.
