Professional Experience

I'm a contributing writer for the Los Angeles Downtown News, and I've written restaurant reviews, local celebrity profiles, and an article for the Downtown Living Section about loft dwellers. I write copy for the SIX FEET UNDER website, which has been selected by the 2004 jury to appear in Interactive Design Annual 10, the September/October 2004 issue of Communication Arts. I also contributed to the SIX FEET UNDER coffee table book "Better Living Through Death," which earned raves from reviewers and readers alike.
