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 solutions in consumer-friendly language. I craft soup-to-nuts copy for global marketing campaigns, chatbots, videos, podcasts, social media, and live and digital events. I even scripted vignettes for an A-list celebrity emcee. 

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.
