Overview

Hello! Thanks for visiting my page. I have a decade of professional journalism experience as a copy editor and reporter, editing everything from long-form stories to in-depth articles on complex issues. My range of editing experience includes short fiction, book and literature reviews, opinion pieces, essays, sports, health and politics.

In my day job I help news and media outlets navigate the digital landscape by developing strategies for compelling storytelling through reporting, multimedia and content production. With more than 500 bylines — and countless others edited and produced — my work has appeared in the Chicago Tribune, Los Angeles Times, New York Daily News, Baltimore Sun, Orlando Sentinel and other publications.

Genres I read on a regular basis:
— Biographies
— Comics/graphic novels
— News/current events
— Music
— Mysteries
— Sports

In my free time — well, who has free time anymore, right? — I enjoy playing soccer and jamming on the guitar to various (OK, none) levels of success.
