Writer & Copywriter

About Me

A writer’s job is to be read. Whether it’s a magazine article or advertising copy the objective is to capture the reader and keep him engaged. Successful writing keeps pages turning. Successful copywriting facilitates clicks and conversions. Throughout my career as a professional writer I’ve done just this. I’ve excelled at relating those plot points that keep a story compelling. As a copywriter, I’ve honed the craft of effecting information and entertainment into action. For my storytelling talents I’ve seen my work published in national magazines including Sunset, Archaeology, Travel Weekly, Southwest Spirit, US Airways Magazine and Wine & Spirits. My story on the 100th anniversary of the first woman to drive across America was included in a compilation of exceptional storytelling designed to teach writing skills to high school students. As a copywriter, my brochure and online work contributed to the ascent of LA City Tours in Hollywood, from a mom and pop operation to the second largest tour company in Los Angeles. Due in part to this success, I was selected to write the in-room Las Vegas Travel & Entertainment Guide for the Hyatt Lake Las Vegas. I’m particularly adept at marketing travel destinations. I work hard to expose those hidden gems that get readers excited about making their travel plans. As such, I’ve been contracted to produce travel guides for locations including, Jamaica, Alberta, French Polynesia, Egypt, Thailand and South Africa. My story on California’s Highway 99 corridor changed the way people think about visiting the state’s Central Valley as a travel destination. I’m proud to say that my work has been read by millions. I look forward to the next opportunity to keep those pages turning and inspiring readers to take the next step.
