About MeA versatile journalist and interviewer, I’m an experienced reporter, writer, editor, and storyteller. I’ve written for business and consumer media on digital marketing, media, and business trends, along with arts, entertainment, and cultural topics.
I’m passionate about interviewing and engaging with people to understand what motivates, inspires and gives them joy. Insatiably curious, I easily establish trust and a unique rapport with subjects. I enjoy learning about people and what inspires their creativity.
As an editor, I bring out the best in writers with whom I work and have a knack for curation, packaging and promoting content. I excel at big-picture thinking and strategy as part of a team and place a premium on creativity.
I love to collaborate and learn about new ideas, reach out to me here.

Train People is an impressionistic, visual poem that offers observations about “train people” who enjoy the benefits of cross-country rail travel. It’s about the journey, not the destination.
The award-winning documentary short film was inspired by my participation as an Amtrak Writer-in-Residence 2016-2017. The film was screened in a dozen festivals in the U.S. and abroad in 2017.
