Professional Experience

My by-line has appeared in over 1,000 highly prestigious venues. Also in demand as a ghostwriter, copywriter and translator, I have never missed a deadline. Please click into my profile to learn more. I write on fine dining, wines and spirits, yachting, fashion, music, literature, human rights, politics, poker, luxury lifestyles, upscale pet care and scores of additional topics. My work has been included in Bon Appetit, Opera News, Decanter, Wine Spectator, Boat International USA and Four Seasons, to cite but a few. I have an uncanny knack for achieving the tone and style of absolutely any publication while still making my articles distinctively my own. My professional motto is "Give the editors exactly what they need." As a ghostwriter, I have written blogs and books for prominent figures. Several of those books are best-sellers. My contracts do not permit me to reveal names; client discretion is always assured.
