Professional Experience

A Telly Award-winning writer, I mix research/analytics obsession, artistic creativity and journalistic discipline. I’m a geek with a tiny bit of chic. During two decades of writing, my work has been distributed through the Wall Street Journal, L.A. Times, Washington Post, USAToday and numerous periodicals. I co-authored the non-fiction business book “The SpawGlass Way,” and contributed to the memoir collection “Red Skirt, Blue Jeans.” Speechwriting clients include political figures, CEOs and non-profit directors, with work presented from Grand Saline, TX to Baku, Azerbaijan.
