Naples, FL USA

Professional Experience

I'm a former fashion magazine editor and manager of a major nightlife Web site. I've recently relocated to Florida, where I'm currently freelancing for the local paper. I specialize in lifestyle, entertainment, and travel writing, but I also have a background in marketing and copywriting. Don't be fooled by my fashion magazine background, my career actually started in the outdoor industries. While I can talk all day on the top trends for fall, I'm actually an avid triathlete, mountain bike racer and marathoner and a tireless practitioner of tomboy. Because of this, I'm comfortable writing technically about outdoor products and technologies, as well as writing on fitness and nutrition.
