I’ve written and edited award-winning articles and features on legal issues, interviewed executives and Academy Award-winning filmmakers, and written press releases that earned media attention.

Here’s a brief sampling of my work as a writer, editor, moderator and project manager.



I will be moderating this upcoming panel discussion – Journalists in Content Strategy, Comms and Marketing – on February 28, 2019. I presented the idea for this panel to the Society of Professional Journalists, Northern California Chapter (SPJ NorCal) last fall. I worked closely with an SPJ NorCal board member to find panelists, secure the venue and set the agenda.
