Overview

My goal is to exceed your expectations. I write clear, engaging prose that is appropriate for your audience. I do not miss deadlines. No project is too big or too small.

I have extensive experience writing a wide variety of articles and creative non-fiction for national and regional magazines, newspapers and websites.

I am accustomed to both short-term deadlines and long-term project planning. I also have over 10 years of experience in editing and rewriting.
