About Me

After a long career that has waxed and waned through the migration of journalism and public relations to the Internet and social media, I've decided to stop managing, coordinating, cajoling, and handling clients, employees, the media, and the occasional boss to focus on what has always been my core competency.

Writing.

The ability to shape perceptions, to educate, to sell ideas, products and services by cobbling together words/headlines/sentences/ paragraphs/stories is what really has lighted my fire all these years.

From my first by-line at my first newspaper job, when I pounded out (literally) late breaking crime stories on deadline, to a multi-page website where I introduced a new technology for business communications, it’s been all about wordsmithing.

So, if you’re looking for a writer who can write long form or short form and can even come up with posts that are noticed, read, and shared, I’m your person.

 I have extensive experience in developing and delivering integrated communications programs for a variety of organizations—from start-ups to Fortune 500 companies--in a variety of industries including food, healthcare, pharmaceutical, personal care products, travel and tourism, telecom and energy.

My most recent experience has been in telecommunications, energy and food.

I have a passion for food. I am the author of two cookbooks self-published through Lulu.com. "You Said A Mouthful: Great Stories and the Recipes They Evoke," is a collection of more than 50 recipes and personal stories developed over 30 years of weekend experimentation. "Get This Cookbook First: It's Full of Stuff Mom Should Have Told You" contains everything aspiring cooks need to know about kitchen paraphernalia, herbs, spices and cooking techniques.

I am also the co-founder of Eat Green LLC, a consulting firm that focused on helping entrepreneurs involved in the local food system in North Texas connect with the kinds of consumers who appreciate the value of locally raised or made food.

We also founded EatGreenDFW.com, which was (and still is) the leading online source for news and information on local, sustainable food in North Texas. Finally, I serve on the board of a relatively new organization call the Council for Healthy Food Systems, a sister organization to the Farm and Ranch Freedom Alliance, a lobbying organization for small farmers.
