Professional Experience

An experienced developmental editor and ghostwriter, I've edited everything from economics to human sexuality to information technology. I've ghostwritten books on career development, real estate investing, innovative business in the video game industry, alternative medicine, and management consulting. I even co-wrote a play, Theater for Justice's "The Keys." I'm wildly curious and find most topics interesting. My favorite question is why. I'm a congenial collaborator, and my most recent client, a successful real estate entrepreneur, calls me his angel writer.
