I am a writer and editor living in Amador County, California. Raised in the San Francisco Bay Area, I live in the same small Sierra Nevada foothill town where my Italian, Irish and Yugoslavian ancestors settled four generations ago.
With 20 years combined experience as a writer and editor, including both creative and technical projects, I am adept at substantive editing, copyediting and proofreading, across multiple project types: human interest and feature articles and columns, web-based content and blogs, white papers, content marketing, manuscripts, menus, newsletters, and more, for a variety of audiences and across multiple industries. I am familiar with SEO strategies and practices, as well as B-2-B and purpose-driven content. I am proficient in WordPress content management.
What’s left to say? I am a nimble and detail-oriented writer and editor who excels at bringing a touch of humanity to technical projects and conversely, incorporating technical aspects/authority to creative projects. Balance = perfection.
My personal creative writing projects include a memoir (in progress), and two blogs, Surreal Housewife, chronicling my ongoing struggle as a maternal scientist, and Amador Food & Review, an outlet where my love of food, meets my passion for writing. Writing about food, cooking, and dining out is rooted in my 14 years in the restaurant industry, which I *mostly* enjoyed and remember.
Thanks for reading! If you have a project you’d like to discuss, drop me a note.
