I have been writing professionally since 2009 when the Warwick Advertiser hired me to be its Government Reporter. Currently I am the managing editor for a medical journal. My previous writing experience includes developing marketing collateral for multiple, large-scale, complex projects in a variety of sectors including defense, intelligence, healthcare, and civil government. I love taking complex issues and making them understandable to the general public.
