I’m a writer and editor. I work with corporations, nonprofits, and independent authors. I look forward to working with you!

I especially enjoy writing about people, books, art, performing arts, design, food, travel, and health, but I consider myself a generalist and love learning about new topics. Let me put your ideas into words.

I’ve edited museum catalogues and ephemera, novels, cookbooks, creative nonfiction/memoirs, and national and regional magazines; produced exceptionally engaging, effective, and accessible articles, newsletters, press releases, programs, and brochures; and, as a publicist and media-relations specialist, I have a proven track record with placements in local and national media. My nonfiction specialties include art and design, health care/medicine, and cookbooks, but I consider myself a generalist and I enjoy any opportunity to explore new topics. If you’d like to see samples of my written work, please visit my online portfolio.

I started my career as a magazine editor in New York (McCall’s and Woman’s Day), and was managing editor at U.S. Art magazine in Minneapolis. Before starting my own business in 1998, I worked in corporate communications at the Minnesota Opera and HealthPartners, a nonprofit HMO.

My B.A. degree in English (with an art history minor) is from Oberlin College.
