Summary

Background

I have been writing professionally for more than 25 years, as a journalist, creative writer, and marketing communications professional. I spent seven years as the Director of Communications for several organizations, including two business start-ups and the School of Visual Arts in New York, a major art institution.

Copywriting, PR, and editorial direction were major responsibilities at these positions, where I created/upgraded and managed both print and online content, including Web copy, newsletters, social media content, brochures, annual reports, books, Fortune advertorial sections, press releases, pitch letters, and more. As a freelancer, on countless short- and long-term assignments, I have continued to build on my work in these areas, while gaining experience with additional writing formats.

I received a bachelor’s degree in English from the University of Pittsburgh and studied writing at the New School in New York. Words have been a constant in my life: I’ve been an avid reader for as long as I can remember; and have pursued both commercial and creative writing projects since I first saw my name in print, as a freshman in college.
