I'm a professional writer, designer and educator. I love challenging projects and, as I tell my students, I find the most reward in accomplishing things that scare me to death. My current interest is in the changing landscape of journalism.

I have been working in the publishing business for more than 15 years writing, editing and designing. I have worked as a newspaper reporter, freelance designer and university professor. Currently I teach undergraduates publication and web design, convergent media and publication editing as well as do freelance graphic and web design.

Here's a sampling of my experience. Check out my full resumé by clicking on the resumé image.
