Editor | Social Media Manager | Content Creator
Last active: 2 months ago
In more than 14 years of experience working with media companies large and small, I have had a front-row seat for the evolution of content from newspapers and radio to blogs, podcasts and social media.
As a result, I have ventured into many professional waters and gathered and range of knowledge that is hard to match.
Have I mapped out social media strategy for clients? Yes.
Have I created engaging online communities? Absolutely.
Have I handled public relations communications for companies of every size? Definitely.
Have I built and operated my own websites? Quite a few over the years.
Have I contributed to the blogs and websites of others? Frequently.
Did I cover live events as a writer and reporter? More than I can remember.
Have I written and edited copy under extremely tight deadlines for a newswire? Indeed.
Have I broadcasted over the airwaves? You betcha.
Did I work on a weekly newspaper? Of course.
As with all great stories, mine has unfolded in episodes, reaching a juncture where I can bring together my editorial and technological skills to deliver powerful messages. My passion revolves around helping companies develop a significant presence and maximize visibility of their identity online via content creation, emerging social platforms and internet communities.
My experience ranges from current roles in social media, public relations and marketing copywriting to a rich history in SEO, blogging and reporting. I am fascinated by the intersection of creativity and technical savvy required to effectively capture an audience.
