I'm a journalist and book editor who offers a nose for news, an ear for language, and an eye for detail gleaned from 30 years of eclectic publishing experience. My business provides writing and editing services to news media, publishers, and individuals. To-gether, we produce projects with purpose, power, and personality.
I'm based halfway between New York City and Philadelphia, in an under-rated state called New Jersey. But my heart-home is a tiny town in southwestern New Hampshire. Have ticket, will travel.
