Professional Experience

I create great copy: Whether it's travel, healthcare, sports, real estate, home and garden, gaming or personal profiles, I deliver. I don't miss deadlines: Editors have turned to me needing projects back in fewer than 4 hours. Give me a deadline, and I'll beat it. I've got an editor's eye and a reporter's ear: I'll work with you to craft the best possible narrative for your publication. Let's talk.
