Having gone from the very structured work environment of the so-called “freelance” writer, to the corporate media world, and back again, my work has taken me all over the place, literally and figuratively.
I’ve done the nine-to five moving-up-the-ranks in the marketing department of the local newspaper, 80-hours-a-week as a reporter at a small start-up (now defunct) community newspaper, and I’ve even sent in my regular columns and articles remotely while out at sea researching and writing a travel story about an archaeological dive (while serving as cook, I might add. How many eggs do you need to stock for a crew of eight out for two weeks? 143).
As an ex-staff-editor, I understand what editors need: writing that’s engaging, well researched, timely and accurate. And as a freelancer, I also understand what a business owner needs: advertorial copy that’s on target, fits the bill, AND meets an editor’s expectations.
I am perceptive and resourceful, an enterprising writer with strong investigative instincts able to conceive, seek out, develop and produce focused, in-depth, creative content and articles on a wide array of subjects.
I believe in giving 110 percent, digging deeper, and looking outside the box. I make it my priority to discover novel directions and identify innovative viewpoints to keep readers engaged.
I’ve worked as a writer in South Florida for 25 years, and my editors know that I can be counted on to complete their projects on time, creatively and correctly. Since heading west two years ago, I’ve continued to work remotely for many of my long-time South Florida connections.
My taste for new places makes me dream of pushing the boundaries even further. I am not one to take the easy road, and, as such, my clients can count on me to go the distance.
As a freelancer, I’ve written for the Palm Beach Daily News, The Coastal Star, Sun-Sentinel, the Miami Herald’s Jewish Star Times, Palm Beach Life, Florida Design, Miami Home & Decor, Palm Beach, Muses & Visionaries, Art of the TImes, The Real Deal.
On staff, I was an editor at The Palm Beach Post and a reporter for Palm2Jupiter.
I have also helped business clients with projects that include content management, SEO, and design, as well as public relations/marketing material, ghost-writing and photography.
