Silicon Valley Freelance Writer

*** ** ******* *** ***. 269-2102

Palo Alto, CA 94306

I provide dynamic content in technology, business, health, and as a generalist.

Using the skills learned as a former newspaper reporter and as a research director, I dig up the latest news and trends in the areas I cover by getting out from behind my computer, to conduct one-on-one interviews with key industrial leaders.

My talent lies in turning that research into well-written articles that convey clarity, eloquence, and enthusiasm. I write with a natural, approachable voice that can easily adapt to projects that run the spectrum from purely technical to highly creative.
