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. In October 2017, I was honored by Kitchen & Bath Design News as one of its inaugural 50 Innovators.
