Thanks for visiting my writing site.  I look forward to hearing more about you and your projects.   Here’s a bit about me.

I had my first byline in a weekly newspaper when I was a high school senior and have been writing professionally ever since.  Along the way, I earned a bachelor’s degree in journalism from New York University and a master’s in communication management from the University of Southern California.   I also worked on the marketing side of a top 10 NPR station and the Los Angeles Times; wrote freelance marketing copy, and ran a daily newspaper website for Gannett.

In 2004, I traded my silk suits for an orange apron and launched a career in kitchen and bath design at my neighborhood Home Depot.  Two years later, I began writing articles about design and remodeling.  That was pretty much a given!

Fast forward to today and you’ll find my two books on sale at Lowe’s, Amazon and Barnes & Noble, my articles on newsstands and websites, and my nine-year-old weekly design blog still going!  I’m also a Certified Kitchen Designer with a San Diego-based practice, which lends my writing a unique first-hand perspective that few design journalists share.

You might be more interested in my corporate work, which you can read about here [link to CORPORATE PAGE].  I’d love to work with you on your freelance writing needs.  Please shoot me a note if you’d like to discuss a project.
