I am an author, journalist, and public relations/advertising copywriter. I began writing professionally at the age of 17 as a stringer for my hometown newspaper, and continued as a student journalist at Hofstra University. I began my career later that year as an assistant editor on a video industry trade magazine, followed by a similar position on a photo industry trade magazine. I then moved into marketing communications for such firms as Bozell & Jacobs Public Relations as an account executive; Olympus, as public relations manager; and Agfa, as employee and corporate communications manager. In 2003 I became a full-time freelance marketing communications writer and a regional journalist. As a copywriter I have written many websites, direct mail brochures, ads, press releases and case studies for clients in industries ranging from retirement communities and digital product manufacturers to publishers and business development firms. As a journalist my features, essays, columns, trade articles and theater reviews have appeared in many print and online publications, including Hartford Magazine, New Haven Magazine, The New York Times, the New York Daily News, New Jersey Savvy Living Magazine, Mobility Magazine, Dramatics Magazine and many others.
