Professional/Personal Overview
  I've been writing for pleasure and publication for a little over 13 years now. I recently began working as a professional copywriter for an advertising agency in Northern New Jersey. Prior to that I interned with an online dating and relationships website and generated publishable content for their blog.

Now what I write ranges from blog and web content to television and radio scripts. I've had a number of my scripts sold and have aired locally.
