Writer and Editor
Last active: 22 days ago
My writing career began in College, graduate school actually. I wrote book reviews for the Akron Beacon Journal. Also, I was a reporter for the University of Akron News Bureau, covering the The College of Arts and Sciences, specifically the arts including music, theater and the UA College of Art.
From there I went to work:
Four years with a trade journal as field writer, managing editor and editor.
I was called to the Advertising Agency world...the money was much better and by then I needed it to help raise my three children.
In 1988, I started a marketing and advertising consulting firm direction clients, including Pepsi Bottling Group of New York State. Although the business ran five more years, I sold the marketing firm and moved in to the technology field, working for an international provider of business management advice to Coke, Pepsi, Bimbo, and many other clients.
In between working, I taught composition, grammar, literature, writing for the media and business communications as an adjunct at several colleges and universities.
