Professional Experience

My work for national magazines and established websites has focused mainly on the body: how to take care of it (health, fitness, nutrition) and how to have fun with it (style, sex, liquor, cigars). I've also written about personal finance, parenting, and weddings. I've been involved in every phase of the editorial process--from idea generation to the final proofread. I'm resourceful, reliable, and ready to match my skills to your editorial style.
