Overview

I'm a narrative writer and self-described grammar freak living in South Philadelphia. I've honed my skills with the red pen as a copy editor for The Temple News; I tell the stories of go-getter entrepreneurs throughout Greater Philadelphia for Region's Business each week; I craft blog entries for companies across the country; and, to boot, I spend my otherwise mindless subway rides brainstorming my next big idea.

Journalism's not just my passion -- it's my life.
