Journalist, features generalist with 18 years' experience in editorial and communications for print and online audiences

2019 Finalist for Los Angeles Press Club’s SoCal Journalism Awards in two categories –
Food/Culture Reviews and Business.
2015 Graduate of Ted Scripps Leadership Institute. Thread at Yale 2015 selected candidate.
2015 Society of Professional Journalists’ Dori Maynard Diversity Leadership Program fellow.
2012 Finalist for Atlanta Press Club Excellence in Print Journalism Award.

I have been working with words for more than 18 years and going strong. In 2018, I launched Traveler and Tourist digital magazine as a proof of concept and now publish it as a monthly lifestyle magazine which I edit and design for a global readership.

I am an editor with print and digital publications. I pen stories for trade and consumer outlets on a freelance or contract basis. Experienced in long form features and shorter blog post style articles, I have worked on interviews, event coverage, business profiles, community spotlights, fact-checking and other forms of narrative and creative writing. An expert generalist and a cognitive thinker, I am comfortable covering diverse subject areas and have worked on multiple beats.

I also work with corporate and individual clients as well as custom content companies writing content and assisting with related requirements like proofreading, blogging, ghostwriting, e-newsletters, website copy, social media, editorial calendars, annual reports, and more.

I am one of the chapter coordinators for Solutions Journalism Network Los Angeles and a member of the Los Angeles Press Club. I am an active member of the Society for Professional Journalists - I was previously interim board member with the Georgia Pro chapter, serving the role of treasurer.

I am based in Hollywood/Los Angeles, Calif. and seek new opportunities and connections in the local, regional and international media and publishing industry.
