Professional Experience

A persistent reporter, passionate writer and AP style guru. My experience ranges from international investigative reporting on human rights issues to reported essays on family and relationships. I have written for national and international newspapers, national magazines, online publications and blogs. I am an American freelancer currently based in London. As a serial expatriate for the past five years, I have lived in Douala, Cameroon; Washington, D.C.; and Moscow. Before making a career change to journalism in 2006, I worked as a media and public relations professional for 6 years.
