Professional/Personal Overview
  Over 20 years of professional writing, I've authored features and columns for dozens of association, trade, and consumer publications. From scrap metal recycling to what food tastes like in space (not much--the astronauts pack Tabasco to liven things up) to unschooling to interviews with celebrities and world leaders, I put my reporter's training to work learning about and delivering lively, clean copy in a wide array of industries and interests.
