My Story

city-lights-headshotI am a freelance writer and editor with more than a decade of experience writing about business, leadership and social media. In addition to being I am a regular contributor to AdWeek’s Social Times blog, I am a founding partner for the digital upstart CultureMass Media, Inc. and Editor-in-Chief for CultureMass.com.

I started my writing career as the co-author and editor of The Freedom Writer’s Diary (Doubleday 1999), an aspirational collection of autobiographical short stories, a New York Times best seller and the basis for the 2007 Paramount Studios feature film “Freedom Writers.” I continue to work with Erin Gruwell and the Freedom Writers Foundation as an inspirational speaker, student mentor, copywriter and training teachers via the Freedom Writers Institute.

Since publishing the Freedom Writer’s Diary, I’ve worked as an editor for several publishers — including Entrepreneur magazine. I have built blogs, websites and editorial systems from the ground up; I have written copy for websites, newsletters, brochures; written business features and profiles; and edited several books including Scott Gerber’s debut title Never Get a ‘Real’ Job (Wiley 2010).

If you’re looking for a book editor, a ghostwriter to write editorial contributions for your executive thought leadership campaigns, or a copywriter for your whitepapers, case studies and other long-form business content, check out my portfolio and shoot me an email.

And if you’re in the Phoenix, Arizona area looking for somewhere to practice yoga, we can do that too. :-)
