My greatest asset as a writer is that I connect with people, from the teacher and parent to the athlete and CEO. Connections build trust and encourage the free flow of ideas, which leads to better stories, those that offer new information and capture the human element. Readers relish in that because they relate to it.
My writing focuses in the areas of health and nutrition--spurred by my love of hiking and skiing, and a passion for quality food. However, I write on a broad variety of topics including personal finance, real estate and development, architecture and design, and parenting.
As a business reporter for The Denver Post, I covered the workplace and retail & marketing beats.
All of my writing is:
- accurate, thorough and fair
- active and engaging
- clear and concise
I also write for several business and nonprofit clients in non-conflicting areas.
Newspaper - Local/Regional
Magazine - Local/Regional magazines
Newsletter - Trade
