Most of my experience is with association, trade, alumni, and consumer magazines and newsletters. My features go beyond the obvious to tell the story that lurks behind the resume--the corporate CEO who climbs mountains in the summer, the accountant who spends his weekends tutoring inner-city children. Hard news stories get to the bottom of the issue, talk to the real experts and insiders, and make complex issues easy to understand.
I’m frequently asked if I have specialties. The short answer is no. There are several areas I’ve written a whole lot about, including real estate, parenting, some medical topics, and multifamily housing. I’ve also authored dozens of people and company profiles in a wide variety of industries. But I consider myself a general-assignment writer.
My recent assignments have included features on scrapyard housekeeping, recruiting university alumni for high-profile volunteer positions, newborn circumcision, holiday shopping discounts for active military members, and the history and future of Glen Echo Park in Maryland. But I’ve also written about amputee pilots, Romanian orphans, university radio stations, veterinary patient compliance, childhood lead poisoning, boat donations, nursing shortages…and just about everything else under the sun.
I pride myself on being able to research a topic, identify and talk to the right sources to get to the heart of an issue, and convey key points to readers in a way that both educates them and keeps them hooked to the very last word.
