I've been a freelance writer in the Detroit area since February 1996. I've loved every moment of it. Well. Nearly.

I specialize in all kinds of writing for clients. While I began my career in the print world, I thrive in both print and digital spheres. Even the digital world influences print now with tighter, more relevant copy everywhere. Still ... great writing flourishes anywhere it's planted.

What I do
• Any writing that requires interviews
• Social/digital content, from Instagram posts to entire websites
• Branding
• Long- and short-form features, medical, business and technical articles
• Podcasts
• POS brochures/marketing materials
• Direct mail campaigns
• Product catalogs
• Email blasts
• National magazine ads
• Professional biographies
• Press releases
• SEO content
• Training videos, TV commercials
