Professional/Personal Overview
  Versatile freelance writer, editor, interviewer, researcher and PR pro. Although features for shelter publications comprise most of my writing, I've covered subjects ranging from business to leisure, travel to telecommunications, and restaurant reviews to white papers. On the business side, I write articles on technology and finance, press releases, newsletters, data sheets, speeches, marketing collateral, and Web copy. In addition to home and garden, on the lifestyle side, I focus on food, travel and relationships.
