I have a way with words and am driven by curiosity. It's taken me from city streets to cornfields in the pursuit of authentic perspectives and compelling narratives.
I'm based in my hometown of Pittsburgh, and at my day job in tourism I collaborate with clients from a broad array of backgrounds to design and deliver experiential travel and events. Whether the interaction is B2B or B2C, the foundation of every successful relationship is H2H – human to human. Understanding a client's goals and discovering her aspirations leads to impactful and engaging results.
My freelance experience spans ten years and includes work as a newspaper features reporter, weekly columnist, magazine editor, and trade magazine writer. The best way to tell a story is to listen, and by being a keen observer I've had the delight of recounting the experiences of a diverse array of individuals - from aerial performers to sleep experts versed in catching Z's.
