Service Description

My professional writing career started as a contributing writer for a local music paper based in Wilmington, Delaware. I soon moved up to Features Editor, where I was responsible for managing all of the paper's content. From there, I went to work as an editor and writer for another regional magazine, before moving to local television, where I was involved with writing ad copy.

Through booking a local television talk show, I met a businesswoman with a fashion consulting business. After initially freelancing projects with her, I eventually became the Creative and Public Relations manager for the business, writing and distributing weekly a e-mail newsletter, press releases, advertising, and running the web site.

I am currently a freelance writer and theater reviewer for the Wilmington News Journal. Past and present clients include Huffington Post Lifestyle, Celebrations.com, Education.com, Parent Dish, Spinner, Holidash, Mapquest, Kitchen Daily, Slashfood and Levis.
