Professional Experience

Call me for jump-off-the page, entertaining and informative stories about anything money. My comfort zone includes mutual funds, investing strategies, debt/credit issues, budgeting and more. My stories make personal finance relevant, interesting and even fun for the average reader. Explaining the ins-and-outs of everything money to newbies while simultaneously challenging more experienced investors is what I do for a living. I also write about small business money issues. Readers of my Star-Ledger money makeover column swear my stories are what they turn to first on Sundays, and I use my consumer affairs expertise to help readers in a weekly column called "Bamboozled." I also have a wealth of experience writing for Web sites and magazines, and I'm a regular contributor to Entrepreneur.com. If you want clean, on-target copy from a dedicated writer who's never missed a deadline (even my three kids were born early!), give me a call.
