I am a freelance writer and editor and have been working as such for about the past 20 years--for magazines and newspapers such as The New York Times, Sports Illustrated, Vanity Fair, Smithsonian, Worth, Mother Jones, and many others. I have also worked as a fact checker, copy editor, and proofreader. Until about a month ago, I served as editor-in-chief of Santa Fean, a bimonthly magazine in Santa Fe, New Mexico (where I live). I have written a book (nonfiction--it came out in 2000 from Dutton), and I have had short stories and poems published in various literary journals over the years. I'm easy to work with, fun, reliable, responsive, and smart. My philosophy is that most people respond to writing that either has something to say or is said well. It's even more enticing when it's got wit or bite, or it's presented in such a way that it catches people's attention--either the subject matter does or a word or a phrase grabs them. Why be boring? Why write more of the same? Even if it's a white paper or a press release, there's no rule that says it can't be fun or challenging or memorable. I can write about pretty much anything, but I've written a lot about art, sports, culture, film, music, pop culture, and people. And I like learning and writing about new things (or things that are new to me).
