Professional/Personal Overview
  I'm a career journalist and public relations director with more than 20 years of experience writing for broadcast television, cable, print and online media outlets.

Currently, I am working as a production manager/ ghostwriter/editor on several book projects for individual clients. Recent book editing projects include the autobiography of Ronald Wayne, titled "Adventures of an Apple Founder" and "Live Younger in 8 Simple Steps" by Dr. Eudene Harry.

I also freelance for several magazines and online outlets. My portfolio includes Orlando Homebuyer, AOL.com, Conceive, Housing Wire, Orlando, Where Orlando, Winter Park, Airtran Airways Go!, and Portfolio Florida magazines. I served as fact checker for SNOW, Meeting Travel and Resorts & Great Hotels magazines, and for the bi-annual publication published by the Intercollegiate Studies Institute.

In 2009, I served as copy editor on a global climate change policy that was advanced at the Copenhagen Climate Conference.
