Professional Experience

A savvy wordsmith, eagle-eyed editor and SEO and digital-media diva, I've worn a lot of hats in my nearly 10-year career. I've tackled the luxury-lifestyle, fashion and retail categories, custom publishing, and have recently dipped my toes in the travel-writing pool. I've also channeled my love for all things design into award-winning real estate, architecture and interior-design writing.
