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. Most recently, I worked as a contract copywriter with Charles Schwab. Previously, I was Senior Writer/Editor at a nonprofit, where I spent five years focusing on the intersection of finance and higher education. Prior to that, I was Head Writer for an educational media company (math, science, social studies), where I worked about ten years. 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.). This site is a portfolio to gather some of my work in one place, and also a blog where I discuss my various creative projects.
