Raised in Charleston, S.C., I moved to Austin, T.X., in January of 2010 just for fun.
I'm a writer. My first published piece was in my 4th grade newsletter at Colt's Neck Elementary. It was bylined. I was hooked. Since then, I've written everything from personal narrative to hard news for print and online local, regional and national media outlets. See My Work for details.
I'm an editor. I silently correct other people's grammar and the red pen is my friend. I've edited newspapers, magazines, book manuscripts, marketing copy, web site content, annual reports, resumes, and pretty much anything with words. I occasionally work with authors of fiction or personal narrative as a creative consultant and editor.
I'm an author. My book, Skirt! Rules for the Workplace: An Irreverent Guide to Advancing Your Career, was published by Globe Pequot Press in 2008.
I'm a techie. I know my HTML from my CSS and my SEO from my SEM. I love new media, new technology, my iPhone, and my Kindle. I am rarely far away from my laptop or mobile device.
