A little about me

I’m based in the Bay Area and have been writing professionally since 2004 (see Work).
I've been a columnist, a restaurant reviewer, a health reporter, a features writer, a newsletter editor, and a winner of industry awards. I've written and edited several books.
I now work as a Senior Writer at Aruba, a Hewlett Packard Enterprise company, where I write about innovative technology in consumer-friendly language. I craft soup-to-nuts copy for global marketing campaigns, product launches, videos, podcasts, and live and virtual events. I've scripted dialogue for celebrity emcees—and also for chatbots.

I've had other adventures, too:

I was National Marketing Manager for a foodservice company with 1000 cafés. I worked in Civil Rights at the U.S. Department of Justice
. And I served in the Peace Corps in Eritrea — one of my proudest accomplishments.

Above all, I'm a storyteller. I use language to make sense of the world and bring others along for the ride.
