I’ve been an independent writer and editor since 1991, focusing on food, general business, technology, and the housing industry--but often going to where the clients and needs are in other industries. In other words, I'm versatile and a quick study.

I write for corporations and nonprofits: My B2B and B2C work for corporations and other organizations (directly or via their marketing and PR firms) encompasses everything from ghostwriting articles and speeches for top executives to writing website, blog, newsletter, and brochure copy; annual reports; and white papers--sometimes even press releases. I am experienced and welcome projects specific to a client’s unique needs.

While I write primarily about technology, general business, and food, I have also done extensive work in the fields of health care, home building, real estate, sustainability, and biotechnology.

I train social media novices and manage social media accounts: I'm well versed in social media, conducting seminars and coaching businesses and individuals on how to harness the Internet and social media platforms for brand-name optimization.

No time or interest in doing it yourself? No problem. I love collaborating with business owners or marketing execs to create powerful engagement in line with your brand to meet your goals on various social media platforms.

I write about food: My articles have appeared in a variety of traditional media, such as Sunset, Saveur, the Los Angeles Times, San Diego Magazine, San Diego Home, Garden/Lifestyles, and the U-T San Diego, as well as websites like ediblesandiego.com (where I write the blog Close to the Source), sharecare.com, and culinate.com. My blog, San Diego Foodstuff, has been a vital part of the burgeoning San Diego food community since 2007. My articles and blog posts have garnered multiple awards from the San Diego Press Club over many years.

 


My food writing led to a new outlet: radio. I co-hosted San Diego Gourmet and Wine and Dine San Diego for several years. I now appear regularly on KPBS radio's Midday Edition.

I’ve made presentations on social media to organizations like the Sales & Marketing Council of Southern California and the San Diego Press Club as well as a group of former San Diego Union-Tribune reporters. You can listen to excerpts of the Press Club presentation here.
