About me

Introduction I’m a writer and editor in Austin, Texas. My work has focused on marketing and scriptwriting (especially educational media), but I’ve done most types of corporate writing/editing (web pages, online newsletters, ad copy, and training materials). I’ve also published some of my personal work in literary journals, and always have my own writing projects underway, mostly poems, songs, and stories. I’m currently making elearning modules for big tech companies. Before that, I was Senior Copywriter for the City of Austin’s Office of Design and Delivery. Previously, I’ve been a contract copywriter with Charles Schwab, Senior Writer/Editor at a nonprofit, and Head Writer for an educational media company (middle school math, science, and social studies). Going way back, I taught intro public speaking and business writing as adjunct faculty at the University of Texas (in both the McCombs School of Business and the Moody College of Communication). I’m originally from Rocky Mount, N.C., and graduated from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill (B.A.) and California State University at Northridge (M.A.).
