I write with a creative, distinctive voice for you.

Writing is the art of permanent expression. When we speak, our words get lost in the air. When we write, our words have depth and staying power.
I have over two years experience working as a magazine feature writer, an interim magazine editor, a newspaper article writer, and an advertising copywriter and editor.
I also have 4.5 years of experience teaching secondary high school English at the remedial, standard, and advanced levels. I have taught hundreds of students to write and edit their own quality work. As a result, I have become an expert at editing and revising others' work in addition to my own.
While teaching overseas in Bangalore, India I documented my cultural experiences in my travel blog, Bangalore City Limits. In the past year I have also developed a personal style website and blog, RestyledFashion.com. I consider writing for an online audience a fun, creative challenge that continues to expand my skills as a writer.
