I’ve bylined 2oo+ published magazine articles, authored more than 1,000 blog posts, written countless e-mail newsletters and fired off who knows how many tweets over my 20-year career. (My parents are pleased that the journalism degree they paid for is going to good use.)
What do all those pieces have in common? A communication style that’s friendly yet authoritative. Engaging and effective. Clear, concise and smart.
(If I do say so myself.)
I’ve spent my media career in magazine publishing, working as editor for HOW, a business and creativity resource for graphic design pros. I also developed and launched a lifestyle publication called Exclusively Yours for American Express Incentive Services. In addition, I’ve written e-mail newsletters, marketing materials and web content for recognized graphic design firms. My portfolio is focused on food, gardening, creative and business topics, including cooking, design, business management, interior design and art.
