Professional/Personal Overview
  I love what I do: write, edit and use my creativity. My fresh, fun writing style is engaging and sets me apart from the ho-hum crowd.

For 15+ years, I have been writing/editing for many pubs, websites and blogs. Fashion is a serious passion, and I write about all things style for a living. As the U.S. Editor for an international glossy, I profile top fashion designers and shopping trends. Other clients include: Banana Republic, DailyCandy, ShopItToMe, AOL and Zagat Survey.

Travel is another love. I served as Editor at Travelocity for four years and continue to cover destinations around the planet.

I have experience writing editorial and marketing copy, as well as emails, ad banners, press releases and social media content. Deftly adapting my writing style to the media at hand is second nature to me. Plus, I pride myself on the fact that I've never missed a deadline (knock wood).

I have a B.A. from Brandeis University and have taken courses at FIT and NYU.
