Professional Experience

No matter your business writing and/or editing need, I'll fulfill it. I'm an award-winning freelance journalist and copywriter with more than 34 years of experience in a wide range of subjects, including--but not limited to--the use of technology in a variety of markets, electronic payments, the business of retail and medical practice, and meetings and conventions. I've written/ghost-written white papers, thought-leadership documents, advertorials, case studies, blog posts, press releases and books. I pride myself on submitting clean, compelling copy in a timely manner, as well as on my ability to learn very quickly about areas/industries I have not covered in the past. I am a very adept interviewer and researcher and can easily establish a level of comfort with my "subjects" that allows me to make the most of the interview. Finally, for editing, ghost writing, and sponsored editorial projects, I have the ability to write and revise in the client's voice.
