I'm a San Francisco Bay Area-based freelancer with a flair for creating engaging, well-researched, and crisp content. When I’m not writing and editing, I’m strategizing how to get clients all the attention they deserve.  

When you need compelling copy...

I have an extensive background (25+ years)

in daily newspaper journalism, freelance content marketing writing, blogging, social media-ing, press release pitching, and editing other people’s copy so it sings.
