What do I do when I’m not writing about the charms of little city life?
I write, I edit, and I research. History, humor, bios, university communications, marketing copy, headlines, Facebook posts, tweets, essays, educational testing materials. I love to put words together and find the best way to communicate an idea or tell a story. I can adopt any voice and engage a variety of target audiences. For me, the thrill of writing is to explore the topic, dig out an irresistible story, and find just the right words to make it not only understandable, but also compelling and indelible.
My broad experience makes me versatile and great at cocktail parties: masters in American Studies, writer, folk music publicist, Smithsonian intern, university advisor and instructor, social media maven, history geek, synagogue vice-president, pie-maker.
