I am a freelance writer, editor, and designer from the Greater New York area. I began my career in 1990 working in Children's Books Marketing in New York City where I created promotional pieces that supported the full catalog of books for the company's five imprints. I soon sashayed on to magazine publishing where I was honored to work alongside elite designers, editors, and writers as an art/editorial production assistant. Throughout my career, I have worked with companies and clients across a number of industries, including fashion, entertaining, travel, interior design, health and beauty, automotive, medical, and human services. My specialties include copywriting and copy editing, designing all manner of print and digital media, and generating marketing and social media campaigns. I'm also a chick singer in a rock and blues band, a potter, lover of dogs, an Oxford comma loyalist, and do not have an actual mustache (as reflected in my profile photo).

Summertime passes in the wink of an eye, and in that wink we are want to treasure its...
