Over the last 20-plus years, I have inked several stories on topics ranging from fashion to general business to high-technology, life sciences, energy/clean technology, health care, education and entertainment. My award-winning work has been featured in the San Diego Magazine, Pacific magazine, San Diego Business Journal, BizSanDiego, T Sector magazine, CONNECT newsletter, Hispanic Business magazine, Ocean magazine, San Diego Metropolitan magazine, Workforce magazine, as well as on KPBS Radio. As part of my role at UC San Diego, I helped promote the Jacobs School of Engineering as one of the top engineering schools in the United States through various collaborative PR efforts, including press releases, blogging, video and photo production and social media strategies. As a seasoned business writer I helped launch a financial services industry trade magazine called Best Practices magazine. My versatile talents have also landed me work writing web site copy, brochures, white papers, case studies, newsletters and press kits, as well as developing social media sites such as Facebook, Twitter and Flickr accounts. I have exceptional written/oral communication skills and can articulate easily understandable and compelling content. As part of my volunteer PR services, I recently co-led the successful PR campaign for the inaugural San Diego Surf Film Festival, which not only gained local, national and international media exposure but also sold out all three days.

I have been a professional writer for over 30 years. I have edited other writers' work for the past five years. I also conducted writing seminars/workshops/classes for aspiring writers. I can tear a manuscript apart when it is headed in the wrong direction and provide constructive criticism to get the writer and his manuscript pointed in the right direction. I am incredibly detailed in all aspects of writing from the flow of the manuscript to grammar and punctuation. It is always my goal to move the manuscript from an idea to a successful piece of work.
