I'm a lifelong word-nerd and publishing nut who majored in magazines at Northwestern University's Medill School of Journalism. Since then, I've been a writer and editor at numerous national and regional titles. As a freelancer, I've penned (and styled) coffee table books, "bookazines," travel guides, marketing material galore, website fodder, and on.
I tackle whatever it takes to create content. Brainstorming an on-brand lineup of material? You got it. Producing, art directing, and styling photoshoots? Sure thing. Reporting, writing, copy editing, and fact-checking stories (and occasionally laying them out, too)? Yep. Coordinating in-house and freelance teams or acting as the liaison between sales and edit divisions? No problem. Translate content into social media and advertising campaigns? You know it. And as for the nitty gritty: I'm proficient with Microsoft Word Office/ Microsoft 365; G Suite/ Google Workspace; Adobe (InDesign, Photoshop—to a lesser degree—and Acrobat); and WordPress.
As of 2021, I'm at a crossroads (who isn't?). In 2020, I left a Charleston, South Carolina-based publishing company after more than a decade directing a division with a shoestring staff that put out three publications (and the corresponding sites, social media accounts,
and blogs). Today I'm looking for a part-time or full-time gig as a
writer or editor—and a role with a low profile. (The change follows a long spell as the face of a luxury publishing brand; I'm looking to both step behind-the-scenes and dig my teeth into new subject matter.) What does that look like for you?
