Writer – Editor – Content Creator
Over a nearly 20-year career as a journalist, I have learned the importance of telling stories and delivering a clear message. As a content creator, I help businesses build their brands and communicate their messages in the most effective ways. As a journalist, I have written thousands of articles on countless topics, including concrete construction, phlebology (vein therapy), music, food, books, people, hard science, business, the environment and sustainability, home and garden, architecture and design, lifestyles, fitness, animals, financial planning, art and travel.
I was editor of a lifestyle magazine for five years, followed by several years as editor of two different trade journals covering decorative concrete and concrete construction. I’ve also spent several years working in traditional web development agencies.
I’m a versatile writer and editor with professional experience spanning two centuries! I’m not THAT old, but I did get my start writing professionally in 1998. Since then, I have written for numerous print and web publications locally and nationally.
I’ve been published in a variety of print and online publications, from restaurant reviews in the daily paper in my city to a global magazine dedicated to humanitarian developments in tech. See my Publications section.
Business Content Creation & Ghostwriting
As a content creator, I’ve helped businesses in industries as diverse as VoIP, 5G, concrete construction and professional organizing. I can help your business too. Please visit my SageMediaandMarketing.com site (currently under construction) for more about my business services.
Editing, Proofreading & Developmental Editing
I edit for clarity and to make the writer shine while I disappear. Proofreading is one of my superpowers, and I can help with any type of editing, whether it’s a finished document you just need a second pair of eyes to go over, or a document you’re not sure how to finish.
