I spent more than six years as a staff writer and reporter in the Life & Style section of The Journal News/lohud.com (owned by the Gannett/USA Today Network), which is the most respected and widely circulated daily newspaper in Westchester County (directly above New York City). I also ghost-write and edit books and manuscripts.

I have: been a writer, reporter and editor at national magazines, websites and a major suburban daily newspaper; composed marketing text for businesses’ websites, blogs and B-to-C materials; ghost-written books; and written high-quality content with little or no supervision. I am also schooled and active in social-media/digital content creation and promotion. 

Topics I've Covered

Films, TV, real estate, cosmetics, plastic surgery, child actors, breast cancer, restaurants, road rage, shopping, exclusive homes, spa treatments, vacation destinations, people with unusual jobs, cooking, tourist attractions, volunteerism, psychics, consumer products, and luxury goods. I've also provided in-person coverage of the Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show; Fan Fair (Nashville's annual, seven-day country-music festival); and the opening of the Rock ’n’ Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland.


  • Meeting deadlines is as important to me as it is to you.

  • I'm a stickler when it comes to grammar, punctuation, usage and spelling .

  • I love words and relish stringing them together to make copy that's lively, entertaining and informative.

  • I am fascinated by and a fan of English's quirks and intricacies.
