Copy Editor, Copy Writer, Editor, Ghostwriter, Writer

Content writer specializing in the built environment, fitness, outdoor pursuits, and recreational vehicles.

I work as a writer with a focus on the built environment—architecture, construction, energy, and transportation. I also have a keen interest in outdoor fun (think Outside magazine), recreational vehicles (RVs), and all things Jeep.

My experience stretches back more than 20 years and encompasses a huge variety of writing projects. When I started as a writer in the marketing department of a software company, I was fortunate to learn to write newsletters, web site copy, direct mail copy, catalog copy, presentation copy, and white papers. Since then I've written blog posts, articles, brochures, ebooks, and so on as a freelance writer. I am proficient at research and interviewing, and I think especially proficient at hooking the reader.
