Writing professionally for more than 20 years, I began my career after graduating with honors from the College of Journalism and Communications at the University of Florida.
I went on to work as a writer and editor at the award-winning magazine Gulfshore Life in Naples, Florida, and then was named editor of the University of Florida Today magazine. Leading a team of writers, graphic designers and photographers to award-winning results, I subsequently became a freelance writer, editor and editorial consultant. This allowed me to write for a broad range of publications encompassing higher education, business, consumer lifestyle and more.
During this time, I also wrote my first feature film, Captiva Island, a coming-of-age family adventure that was produced and distributed to worldwide television audiences.
Subsequently, I co-founded and managed a lean and nimble multimedia production firm in South Florida, iQ Media Group, where I also worked as a writer-producer. The company specialized in web development, digital media production and publication management. Concurrently, I was a key member of a scrappy B2B tech startup producing medical news for streaming media delivery to subscriber consumer health sites in conjunction with Reuters Health.
When a leadership opportunity arose for my wife at the University of Washington, we relocated to Seattle, and I seized the chance to concentrate on creative writing, producing award-winning screenplays and penning my first novel.
My most recent work includes commissioned screenplays for producer clients; copywriting for BORN, a global creative agency based in London; and writing a range of content for a physician-led virtual reality startup in the San Francisco Bay area focused on using VR to relieve anxiety, depression and chronic pain among elderly patients in assisted care facilities.
In addition to traditional journalism and narrative storytelling, I’ve earned a certificate in Professional Technical Writing at the University of Washington. When not working, I enjoy following college sports and exploring the world of digital music production, playing and recording in a small home studio.
