Professional/Personal Overview
  From glossies to newspapers, I'm an experienced and widely published freelancer who has developed specialities in home improvement, men's magazines and high-end corporate and leisure travel. To keep my reporting and source developing skills sharp, I regularly contribute to the New York Post as a street reporter covering crime and celebrity gossip. The one word my references--both personal and professional--will use to describe how I approach life is "hustle." It doesn't matter if it's a 75-word front of book tidbit or a 3,000-word issue piece, you'll get the same hustle and effort. I've also managed a small award-winning publishing house and overseen editorial and production for seven city guides for home improvement--and appeared on national television and radio programs as a expert in the field of home improvement.
