My goal as a writer is to unearth the telling details that bring the color and texture of a person, place, or issue to life on the page. Whether I’m crafting a 4,000-word investigative piece for a magazine, writing a corporate profile, or generating content for a small business website, I’m a detailed, strategic thinker and a careful and intuitive writer who gets the facts right.
